Do you have a crime story bubbling inside you? Or are you being haunted by a detective in search of a crime?

Then our crime fiction workshop, by two celebrated writers in the field, is just the thing for you.

Joanne Hichens, author most recently of the highly praised memoir Death and the After Parties, but better known as a writer of crime fiction (Divine Justice, Sweet Paradise) is conspiring with fellow crime specialist, and winner of the CWA Debut Dagger Award, Michéle Rowe (What Hidden Lies, Hours of Darkness) to present an introduction to crime writing at our Saturday workshop.

It’ll be of benefit to literally anyone interested in a life of crime (writing) – whether they’re accomplished or just beginning.

Cat burglars are especially welcome
