WRITING CRIME FICTION - Saturday April 14th - Tutor Dr Ron Day
Many of us enjoy a crime novel and writing one can be just as much fun.
This genre requires the creation of colourful characters, the development of a twisting and turning storyline, the laying down of false clues and a final scene with a real twist.
We will examine characters in popular crime novels and explore why they are so well loved. We will look at the personality of criminals and what drives them to commit crimes.
Building tension and planting false clues is vital in this genre. We will look at effective ways to do that.
Date: Saturday April 14th
Time: 10am to 3pm
Where: Gondor Writers’ Centre, 19 Caloundra St, Landsborough.
