This two-hour 100% online workshop will help you to investigate what cosy crime is, and why it is one of the most engaging genres within fictional crime writing.
It’s aimed at anyone interested in developing their creative writing, whether you have done any previous writing before or are a complete beginner.
With the recent success of Pavesi’s Eight Detectives, Turton’s The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle and Osman’s The Thursday Murder Club, there is a clear demand for the genre.
During the course you will:
- take part in a dynamic group discussion on writing
- complete writing tasks from prompts
- begin to plan out your own cosy crime
- gain feedback on your writing style.
What will I gain?
By the end of the session you will have built confidence in your writing skills and have some new ideas to further pursue your writing.
Level: Beginner / Intermediate
Entry requirement: No previous experience is necessary.
