Writing Crime Fiction

According to Stephen King, the situation comes first, followed by the characters, and then you ask the question ‘what if?’ In this crime writing workshop you will be introduced to a range of situations and characters to fire your imagination. Then you will ask ‘what if?’ and create a new idea for a crime story.
