As somebody who has attended The Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival’s creative writing course, Creative Thursday in the past, I’d strongly suggest that you check out the details just released of this year’s event schedule.
The day will run from 9am – 5.30pm on Thursday 19th July 2012 and places are now available to book for the price of £99 (including lunch at the Old Swan Hotel).
This year’s intensive writing workshops will cover the subjects of Forensic Research, led by Stuart MacBride with expert input from forensic scientists from The James Hutton Institute, and Plot Development, led by experienced creative writer Greg Mosse. Success Stories will then see authors Mari Hannah, Mark Edwards & Louise Voss share their own stories on how they finally got the attention of major publishing houses, whilst their editors will also divulge what it was about the authors and their work that made them want to publish.
Back by popular demand, ‘The Dragons Pen’ also returns to Creative Thursday 2012. Places are limited, so if you would like the chance to pitch your ideas to a team of publishing industry professionals please advise upon booking.
To book for Creative Thursday 2012, please call the Festival Office on 01423 562303.
Go for it !
