Have you ever wondered what happens when the custody door has slammed?

Do you struggle to write a tension-filled yet cliche free police interview?

Does the ‘who does what’ in crime investigation blow your mind?

Well, worry no more, as this Saturday, aided by an experienced custody officer, a homicide interviewer and live webchats with a defence solicitor and a worldwide expert on suspect interviewing, you’ll learn from real-life cases and footage to discover how to mould reality into well-paced, authentic crime fiction.

Join defence solicitor and crime writer, Nadine Matheson, worldwide interview expert Dr Andy Griffiths and me for a fun, yet info-packed interactive workshop where we cover:

– How and why arrests are made
– What powers arrests provide officers
– The step-by-step timeline from arrest to charge
– How suspects are treated in custody
– Limitations on detention
– Suspect interview techniques
– Phasing a dramatic interview
– Charging, the CPS and court
– In-depth Q&A with policing and legal experts
And a whole lot more!

After all that you will write an interview scene for an inclusive professional critique.

The workshop will be delivered in partnership with the Professional Writing Academy and, like all good interviews, will be recorded for your future reference!
We really look forward to seeing you this Saturday to help you write sizzling yet authentic crime.
