Course description

IMMERSE YOURSELF IN A VIRTUAL CRIME SCENE ON THIS INTENSIVE WEEKEND COURSE AND GAIN THE TOOLS TO WRITE GRIPPING, AUTHENTIC INVESTIGATIONS AND CHARACTERS

This intensive weekend course is suitable for crime writers who pride themselves of understanding real UK crime procedure and want to make their crime story and characters feel authentic.

Led by Peter James’ and Mark Billingham’s Police Advisor, Graham Bartlett – a former senior detective and Sunday Times bestselling author – the course takes you into an immersive virtual crime scene where along with a small group of like-minded writers you’ll learn hour by hour as the investigation unfolds:

The process that leads to the identification, arrest and interview of a suspect
The professional roles involved, how they work
Where conflict and empathy arise
What obstacles lie in the protagonist’s way
How to build credible drama out of what can be flat and bureaucratic procedures
How to keep your reader at the centre of the action.

You’ll learn direct from a former senior detective, CSI, Behavioral Analyst, as well as seasoned crime writers such as Peter James, Elly Griffiths, Mark Billingham and Julia Crouch.

Inspired by the case, you’ll submit a 1,500-word piece of creative writing by Sunday night.
