Crime Writing Workshop

private eye

I led a Crime Writing Workshop at the Five Glens Arts Festival in Manorhamilton, Co Leitrim, in 2016. Details of that workshop are included here to provide a flavour of my workshop content and techniques.

Hardboiled or ratiocinative, contemporary or historical – if you’re interested in polishing your dialogue or sharpening your plots, contact me to discuss a Crime Writing Workshop for pragmatic discussion and real-time exercises in this enduring genre.

Two documents are attached:


Preparation (optional): Send a writing sample of up to 1,000 words for preview and feedback. See the Guidelines for more detail.
