The Crime Scene: A Creative Writing Workshop at the beautiful and historic Morrab Library in Penzance, Cornwall.

The fact and fun-packed three hour session, will be presented by UEA alumna Karen Taylor, whose debut crime thriller was long-listed for the CWA Debut Dagger.

So, if you’re dying to write that thriller? Want to delve into crime fiction, and explore the different sub-genres, from psychological, gritty, noir, to cosy? And learn the techniques expounded by masters like Patricia Highsmith and Stephen King, while trying your hand in short exercises looking at structure, settings, dialogue and that all important opening? Then join the group (no more than 12) and explore this fascinating genre.

Book your place at pzlitfest.co.uk or at The Acorn, online, on the phone or in person. (£25).
