CRIME WRITING WORKSHOP at the IRISH WRITERS CENTRE with LOUISE PHILLIPS
Over 10 weeks, commencing the 5th February, this course will cover many elements of successful crime writing – creating tension, pace, memorable characters, effective dialogue, plot and a gripping page-turning story.
Workshop exercises and editorial critique will also sharpen your fictional voice, and as research is a huge component of crime writing – the course will look at how much, how little, and where do you go to find the answers you're looking for?
During the course, we will have visits from detectives who will take you step-by-step through crime scene evaluation and the gathering of forensic evidence.
Since commencing workshops, two of Louise’s students have achieved publishing deals and another two are signed with agents.
If you’re looking to start or finish your crime novel, this course will get you closer to the finish line.
Louise Phillips is the bestselling author of psychological crime thrillers, Red Ribbons, The Doll’s House (Winner of the Irish Crime Fiction Book of the Year) and Last Kiss.
