Are you a criminal mastermind in the making? Are you considering applying your evil genius to the world of fiction? Then look no further than crime writing! This Masterclass, for new or experienced crime writers, will help you release your inner demons onto the page and turn them into compelling fiction.

This Masterclass will take you under the hood of crime fiction through the lens of bestselling crime writer A. A. Dhand. Over two hours, he will blend writing techniques and wicked prompts to help you generate new writing. You’ll also come away having explored the wide-ranging genre – hardboiled, spy, domestic, police procedural, detective and noir. By the end of the Masterclass, you should have amassed a crime writing toolkit to enable you to move your project forward.

Bring your most cunning schemes, steeliest-nerves and all your creative verve!

"Arvon at Home creates a model to participate in inspirational tutoring for writers, at a distance. The feeling of attending to my writing life in an excellent fashion, and still having a half-day for my work and caring responsibilities at home, felt like a good balance."

"It was an absolutely brilliant session and very very useful. And it made me realise how much I’ve missed this kind of workshop because of having children and family that I can’t leave. Now we’re all in the same boat the online stuff is truly transformative."
