Best-selling crime novelist John Dean is to run two weekend courses for aspiring writers at his home near Castle Douglas in Dumfries and Galloway.

John, author of 17 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.

John said: “Sometimes it can benefit writers to get away from the daily grind and take themselves off somewhere that will spark their creativity. My courses gives them that opportunity.”

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.
