Crime Writing Workshop: Jane Casey

Jane Casey (right) – the award-winning and bestselling author of the Maeve Kerrigan series of novels – hosts a crime writing workshop at the Waterford Writers’ Weekend entitled ‘How to Kill Strangers for Fun and Profit’. To wit:
Characters are the engine that drives the plot. This workshop explores ways to create and develop believable characters using description, dialogue and action. It includes practical exercises for new and experienced writers, discussion of what makes a good series character and what makes a good villain, and a Q&A session.
