What is it that makes good crime writing so compelling? And how are we building up a crime writing tradition that is distinctively modern and Australian? This course aims to find your crime writing voice, and to place it within the Australian context – unique but recognisable, risky, dangerous and satisfying. We’ll talk about language and ideas, find the reference points in Aus lit and classical crime, and try to push ourselves into unknown territory.

Howdunnit: Plot cohesion, narrative tension, and drawing your reader through the end

  • Conflict – not just violence, but the problem that ties your story together
  • Plotting and structure from the crime to the conclusion
