Last year I attended this superb full day’s crime writing tuition by Stuart Macbride, Allan Guthrie and Joseph Finder, followed by a chance to enter the Dragons Pen to pitch a novel idea to a panel of publishing experts (sadly going unpicked from the hat).
This year’s event details have just been published and, if you’re wanting to get a crime novel published, I assure you that this year’s event sounds even better than last and for the full day (9-5.30pm including a lunch at the Hotel and then on to Alibi’s ‘Search for a New Crime Writer: Winner’s Reception’) this is £99 very well spent.
Here’s some of the info – the rest you can get from the festival website: Go and enjoy, and write….
