An exclusive one-day crime writing workshop with Kim Sherwood.

Kim Sherwood was commissioned to write a new series of James Bond books, becoming the first female author in the series of spy novels created by Ian Fleming. She is the creative writing lecturer at the University of Edinburgh and her first novel Testament (2018) won the Bath Novel Award and Harper’s Bazaar Big Book Award. In 2019, she was shortlisted for The Sunday Times Young Writer of the Year Award. Dame Hilary Mantel called Kim “a writer of capacity, potency and sophistication.”

Join Kim to explore how crime fiction comes together from a writer’s perspective with discussion and practical exercises on creating compelling characters, structuring story and developing setting. Whether you’re just beginning or you’ve been living with an idea for years, this workshop will offer a practical look at the genre with guidance on how to make it your own.
