Committing the Perfect Murder

Ever wondered how you commit the perfect murder? How to dispose of a body? What’s the best way of getting blood off the soles of your shoes? I’m delighted to be part of a three-day crime-writing feast, alongside best-selling crime-writers Danuta Reah and Michael Fowler, a former undercover police officer at The Stables, High Melton College from Wednesday 22nd April – Friday 24th April 2015. The programme includes workshops on how to develop both plots and characters as well as practical tried and tested advice on how to create dramatic tension and gripping opening chapters.  The final day arms you with the information needed to best submit your work, whether to agents, publishers or competitions. We will all be on hand to answer individual queries throughout the course, and you will be able to book a twenty minute one-to-one session with an author to discuss your work or a project you are working on. COST: £135 (includes all buffet lunches, teas and coffees over the 3-day-event) For programme details and how to book a place please e-mail Michael Fowler at There’s a lot more events in the pipeline too – starting on Monday 22nd September with a Whodunnit at Fictions of Every Kind. Check out the diary for details of further writing retreats with the WEA, including a week long retreat next Summer!
