John Mackintosh Hall

In this discussion-based session, Lucy Atkins offers techniques, tips and tactics for aspiring authors. Lucy talks about how she crafts her own ‘noir’ fiction, exploring her writing process - from plotting (or not) to researching beetles for The Night Visitor, and getting up at 5am to write. She will focus specifically on techniques for creating suspense and tension - and why every author needs them. The session will include information for aspiring authors on how to find a literary agent, and how to get a book published.
