I will be appearing as a guest of the Melbourne Writers Festival this year to co-conduct a seminar on The Art of Crime Writing.
First, let me say how delighted I am that the festival organisers have recognised crime writing is an Art. That gets us off to a good start.
Details from the MWF website as follows:
Crime writers Angela Savage (The Dying Beach) and Scotland’s Doug Johnstone (Gone Again) portray very different worlds, but are united in one thing: they write entertaining stories of criminal intent. This seminar is designed for anyone writing or wanting to write crime fiction, and explores ways to create a believable world of crime and resolution. Chaired by Kate Larsen.
Kate, Doug and I will tailor the discussion to what the audience is interested in, so come armed with your burning questions. We will share all our crime writing tips and secrets…and then we’ll have to kill you.
