Begin your journey into the thrilling world of crime fiction at the Sunshine Coast Literary Association’s crime writing workshop – Murder and Mayhem, Crime Writing with Pat Noad.

The workshop will be held at the Coolum Community Centre, Jack Morgan Park, on Saturday, 14 April from 9am to 1pm.

SCLA President, Bryan Ward said the workshop was a great way to start aspiring writers on their way to crafting a gripping crime short story, full of mystery and intrigue.

“Crime fiction is an exciting area of writing and is one of the fastest selling genres in the world today,” Bryan said. “Writing crime fiction isn’t too difficult when you have the appropriate formula, tools and dedication,” Bryan said.

Presenting the workshop is Pat Noad, a founder of Crime Writers Queensland and a successful short story writer and author of the Annie Bryce crime novels. She is also an experienced literary competition judge.

The workshop will cover: plot, setting, the language of crime, character development and how crime differs from other genres. Pat will also explain the qualities judges look for and the ‘dos and don’ts’ of writing for competitions.
