Short Course: Writing Thrillers
7th November 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Thrillers and crime novels now outsell all other fiction, responsible for an astonishing 18.7 million book sales in the UK in 2017. They might be popular, but in a crowded marketplace, how do we ensure our thriller stands out from the crowd?
Liam Brown, author of four internationally-published novels, shares his secrets for crafting an unforgettable – and unputdownable – thriller.
From developing strong characters to plotting your story and developing a sucker-punch twist, over five weeks we’ll explore the ways you can take your writing to the next level, as well as exploring strategies for getting your novel published once its finished.
Through a series of practical workshop exercises, with plenty of opportunity to share your work and ask questions, you’ll learn how to create and sustain suspense, and satisfy readers with your plot.
This course is open to experienced prose writers and beginners alike.
