9:30 am

2:30 pm

This workshop will run from Monday 10 to Wednesday 12 July, from 9.30am to 2.30pm each day with two breaks built in to each day.

Learn how to get away with murder with internationally bestselling and award-winning crime-writer Catherine Ryan Howard. This workshop will take writers through the same process Catherine follows herself every time she starts a new book: finding and developing an idea, plotting and planning, writing the first draft, and preparing your work for submission to agents and editors.

Max: 15 participants

Admission: €230


This workshop is everything Catherine wishes she knew before she began, and all she has learned since she started. Suitable for writers at all stages, it will especially appeal to those with an interest in plotting and the architecture of story, and although it will focus on crime, its principles can be applied to all genres of popular fiction.


DAY 1: The Interrogation: taking your ideas from brain to blurb


DAY 2: Get Your Story Straight: plotting and writing the first draft


DAY 3: Crime Does Pay: preparing your work for submission to agents and editors
