Event description

Award winning crime author Louise Phillips and bestseller Sam Blake bring you a very special online crime writing workshop. Discussing their own inspiration and practice, focusing on how they each develop character and plot, alongside tips on dialogue, pace, and structure, you will get inside their criminal minds in a relaxed and open discussion, coming away inspired and focused.

If you have an idea for a crime novel, or have already started one, why not bring along your opening paragraph, pitch idea, or an outline of your main character, and they will answer all your questions and help critique your material.

The first session of the morning will focus on character, plot and structure, and the afternoon session will offer tips on creating great dialogue, pace, and perfecting that killer pitch.

With limited places, don’t miss the chance to get inside the minds of two of Ireland’s most successful crime writers!
