Fiction: Literary Thriller

Secrets and suspense

Monday December 10th - Saturday December 15th 2018

Lumb Bank

The thriller genre is wide-ranging, from police procedurals to serial killers; political thrillers to single mothers with deadly secrets. But all good thrillers are character-driven, plot-dependent and elicit a heightened emotional response in the reader.

In this practical and intensive course, your tutors help you learn how to craft a nail-biting thriller, packed with suspense, secrets and plot twists.

This course is half-price to Arvon 18-25 members and those in receipt of certain state benefits.

Single room price: £770 
Shared room price: £720
