Join writer Kim Sherwood, the first woman to write an official James Bond book, to explore how crime fiction comes together from a writer’s perspective.
Sherwood will lead a discussion and practical exercises on creating compelling characters, structuring story and developing setting.
This workshop, for adults only, will offer a look at the crime genre with guidance on how to make it your own.
Sherwood’s Double or Nothing is the first novel in a new series of books set in the universe of Ian Fleming’s James Bond. Her first novel Testament won the Bath Novel Award and Harper’s Bazaar Big Book Award. In 2019, she was shortlisted for The Sunday Times Young Writer of the Year Award.
Sherwood is the creative writing lecturer at the University of Edinburgh.
