ADVANCED CRIME FICTION WRITING - One Day Course 9th May at the Irish Writers Centre

Available for booking from this week, but there are ONLY 3 places left! So if you are interested, get booking!

This course with Louise Phillips is aimed at writers who have completed an introductory creative writing course and/or are currently writing a crime fiction novel. It will focus on plot development, hot seating your principle characters, incorporating tension and a fast pace into your story, one with page turning quality, and how best to create effective dialogue. There will be a series of workshop exercises, along with a talk from a crime scene professional.
