Krystal Sutherland

House of Hollow

Hay Festival 2022, 

Setting the scene and atmosphere is key to a twisting thriller story that keeps readers guessing. From sweet summer roses to the foetid stench of decay, scent is a powerful, yet all too often an underused, storytelling tool. Krystal Sutherland, author of House of Hollow, leads an interactive workshop on good and bad smells, and how to use the language of smell to create atmosphere in your writing.

YA, 12+ years
