I’ve just heard that bookings are now open for the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival’s creative writing course for aspiring writers – Creative Thursday. Held on Thursday 18th July 2013, and running from 9am to 6pm, it’s a fabulous opportunity for those interested in writing crime.
This day-long programme of workshops and seminars gives aspiring crime and thriller writers access to bestselling crime writers, publishing industry professionals and real-life crime experts.
The workshop will cover topics including:
- Learning from the Greats
- Constructing Character and Plot
- Interactive Session with the Forensic Science Society
- Plus the return of The Dragons Pen – Dare you enter and pitch your novel idea?
In addition, a lucky few Creative Thursday participants with a completed concept for a crime novel will get the opportunity to pitch their book to two agents
The Creative Thursday workshop costs £99.
