Midday Virtual Historical Crime Writing Workshop with Elizabeth Haynes, Noirwich 2020


Build the fundamental skills needed to research and write a historical crime novel with bestselling author Elizabeth Haynes in ‘Researching for Historical Fiction’, an online workshop organised by Noirwich Crime Writing Festival 2020.

Elizabeth will offer insight and advice on setting your characters in a historical time and place, how to manage research, getting the balance of historical setting vs story, and more. The workshop will use examples from the nineteenth century, but is applicable to any historical period.

Elizabeth’s most recent novel The Murder of Harriet Monckton is a masterclass of suspense set in Victorian England and inspired by a real-life murder inquiry. The Sunday Times called it ‘a thoroughly absorbing whodunnit, with an unexpected conclusion. Haynes’ novel is also a touching portrait of a young woman unjustly stigmatised by the prejudices of her day.’

This online workshop will take place online via Zoom. Instructions will be sent to you a few days in advance.

Tickets for the workshop are £35 and can be booked online HERE.

Can’t make this date and time? Elizabeth will be running the same workshop on Friday 11th September at 11am.
