Crime Writing (Available Now)

Ann Savage and Tom Neal in the 1945 film 'Detour'Overview

Crime Writing is made up of twelve lessons, including two opportunities for you to gain written feedback on your writing from the course tutors. The course also offers you a range of opportunities to try out different writing techniques, participate in peer discussion, and other (crime related) interactive activities.

From the day you enrol, you have up to 16 weeks to complete the course. We recommend spending a minimum of one week on each lesson.

Designed by Dr Inga Simpson, this course helps you develop a deeper understanding of crime writing and its sub-genres, explore research and planning ideas, and expand your writing skills. Each lesson includes a range of classic and contemporary readings featuring different subjects and styles, a discussion of the techniques used by a variety of writers, and opportunities for you to experiment with your own writing.

You will work through the process of coming up with an idea for a novel, developing and researching that idea, drafting and editing the opening chapters, and writing a synopsis to pitch to a publisher. You’ll cover ideas and techniques for developing plot, character and setting, as well as elements of style. You will also explore the sub-genres of crime fiction including true crime, and the pleasures of writing series crime fiction.

Cost: $295.00
