Attention turns to next creative writing courses

Thoroughly enjoyed a great weekend course with authors from the Darlington-based Inkerman Writers, very creative! Now attention turns to July 6.

Indeed, there are still plenty of places left on both weekend summer courses for writers run by best-selling crime novelist John Dean at his home near Castle Douglas in Dumfries and Galloway.

John, author of 18 novels and currently published by London-based The Book Folks, is the creator of the popular DCI John Blizzard and DCI Jack Harris series.

He will run courses based around sense of place from his 19th Century home set in rolling countryside on the weekends of July 6/7 and August 24/25, 2019.

The workshops will be suitable for writers of all prose genres and will be ideal for either individuals, including those planning to holiday in the area, or writing groups.

The cost is £95 per person, including catering, and you can find out more by emailing Inscribe Media Limited, of which John is a director, on deangriss@btinternet.com The course is non-residential but advice can be offered on local B and Bs.

Can you really trust a crime writer?

I will deliver two free talks in Dumfries and Galloway to celebrate Book Week Scotland in November, both of them looking at the conversation between writer and reader. The theme of Book Week Scotland this year is Blether and I will look at how you can’t always trust the writer to tell the truth!What do I mean by that? Well, convention dictates that the reader can trust…See More
