Introduction to Crime Writing

Angela Savage


Course blurb

Crime fiction is generally seen to appeal to readers for its compelling plots, vicarious thrills and flawed characters; and also because, unlike in real life, justice is (usually) served. Combining input with practical writing exercises, this workshop will introduce you to the elements of a thrilling crime read. You’ll learn how to:

  • Find ideas for crime stories
  • Develop convincing characters
  • Plot and structure your story
  • Set a cracking pace

You’ll also be encouraged to think about the kind of crime fiction you like to read and write, and consider broader questions of crime and justice that underpin the genre. A list of recommended crime fiction reading and resources will be provided.
