Have you always dreamed of writing compelling fiction about murder, mayhem and where to put the body? Join successful crime author Cat Connor as she shows you where and how!

This course is designed to introduce new writers (and more experienced writers) to the world of crime writing. You will be looking at writing basics, crime genres, characters, story construction, research, plotting and story arcs, outlining (yay or nay), heroes and villains and finish with log lines and synopsis writing, among other things.

This is an intense but fun course designed and taught by Cat Connor who teaches writing via Writers Plot Bookshop and is also an internationally published crime writer of multiple books.

The objective is to encourage and support you by imparting knowledge that you can apply going forward and find real enjoyment in writing crime (or whatever you go on to write).

Bring notebook and pens.

By the end of the course, you’ll be able to:

Create an outline for a crime novel or short story.
Construct characters’ maps and believable characters.
Demonstrate and recognize active and passive writing.
Develop sound and robust research techniques.
Use plot diagrams to enhance an outline.
Construct loglines, taglines, and blurbs.
