‘A Day to Die For’- Tracey Hawkins

Do you fancy creating a good, juicy murder? Or have a body and don’t know what to do with it? Perhaps you’re not sure what police actually do at a crime scene? Wondering if you need a psychopath, a sociopath or a serial killer in your story? Or perhaps you just want to write a ‘nice’ mystery with some nasty bits included?

This full-day workshop will help clear up the conundrums of crime writing, encompassing what really happens at a crime scene, how to kill and maim your victim and unraveling the mystery of forensic investigation. The session will cover plotting, character, how to keep track of your herrings and clues, and the means to thinking like the ‘bad guy’. Join Tracey Hawkins, an ex Police Detective and published author to unleash your dark side. Please bring along any manuscript or works-in-progress, your lunch and an open mind. This workshop is not for the faint-hearted.
