In this Crime Writing for Beginners course, J.A. Corrigan will explore the concept of ‘Story is King’.

Exploring the fundamental principals of Story and Plot, and how it is essential to understand your characters and their motives, which in turn will direct a novel’s flow and narrative.

We will discuss how, once these elements are firmly established, the writer can move on to enhancing tension and suspense through the story’s themes and settings – all of which are essential to the fundamentals of crime and thriller writing.

With additional advice on structure and point-of-view, Julie-Ann will provide the new writer with the tool kit to ensure a solid start to their emerging story.
