Crime Fiction

Mon 14 Oct 2013 @ 18:00 - Sat 19 Oct 2013 @ 14:00

£620

This week we invite would-be, or already published, crime novelists to experiment with new ideas. The aim of the five days is to show that there is no set format for the crime genre, except a dedication to good storytelling. Expect serious hard work, stimulation and plenty of self-deprecating laughter.
Tutors:

Frances Fyfield, a one-time criminal lawyer, has written 22 novels in the crime genre and won the Crime Writers’ Association Gold and Silver Daggers. She also presents the
BBC Radio 4 series Tales from the Stave.
Dreda Say Mitchell has published five crime novels and a short story in the anthology Vengeance, edited by Lee Child. She was awarded the Crime Writers’ Association John Creasey Dagger or best first novel in Britain, 2005, for Running Hot. www.dredasaymitchell.com
Guest Denise Mina is the prizewinning author of nine novels, including The End of the Wasp Season.

Arvon’s residential writing courses run from Monday afternoon to Saturday morning. Each course is tutored by two professional writers plus a guest writer who visits mid-week to read their work and answer your questions. There are daily workshops over four days running from Tuesday to Friday, and a one-to-one tutorial with each tutor too.
