A Very Different Weekend

Last weekend we hosted a series of crime writing masterclasses - Crime and Publishment - led by famous authors and industry professionals. Over the course of the weekend we had seventeen budding authors attend the various sessions.

Each session went well and there was a wonderful atmosphere as writers from all over the country learned from the professionals. Learning wasn't the only thing on the agenda as all the attendees made new friends, networked and talked about crime writing.

The final session was unique opportunity for crime writing classes as each attendee was given the chance to pitch their work to one of Scotland's top agents (Allan Guthrie). One by one they fought back the nerves, stepped into the lion's den only to emerge delighted with the feedback and insightful help from Allan.

Plans are already underway for Crime and Publishment 2014
