It’s All In The Mind – Newcastle Noir crime writing workshop

We are delighted to announce " It’s All In The Mind", a crime writing workshop with Dr Christiana Gregoriou, as part of Newcastle Noir fringe events. This session will take place on Saturday 30th April, 10-12am.

Following the success of last year’s event, this crime writing workshop will give participants an insight into the way in which crime fiction works. It will introduce possible world theory, which can shed light on the nature of crime fiction narrative structure, and the ways this can manipulate, and control, readers’ reaction to such text. The workshop also presents a concept known as ‘mind style’, which connects linguistic choices to an understanding of character minds. The workshop will include participant activities and discussion.

Dr Christiana Gregoriou is a lecturer in English Language at the University of Leeds, and has written widely on stylistics, crime fiction 'deviance', and criminal ideology; she is a founding member of the Crime Studies Network

This is the second of two possible crime writing workshops. The other workshop will take place on Tuesday 26th April, 6-8pm (details can be found below on our home page).

Tickets for these events are £10 for a single session or £15 for both
