Crime & Thriller Writing Taster
with Andrew L Reynolds
3 – 4.30pm Saturday 23rd September
Entry £6, tea and biscuits included!
Meet creative writing tutor Andrew Reynolds and enjoy a taste of what’s to come on our new ‘Into Darkness’ course.
Welcome to the scene of the crime. The evidence is inconclusive. The mystery unsolved. It’ll take a maverick to piece together the clues and figure out the whole story. A maverick like you.
This standalone workshop is a short introduction to writing thriller, crime and conflict, and a fun preview of our 8-week Into Darkness course. After fuelling your imagination, we’ll set you loose on the page so you can begin to transform a villainous idea into a page-turning story.
