Young and Bloody Scotland is our new crime and thriller writing masterclass developed in partnership with the Scottish Arts Club. It’s a day packed with inspiring and creativity-boosting workshops, as well as talks from some of Scotland’s leading authors, held at their club in Rutland Square, central Edinburgh.

After this full day masterclass, you will leave equipped with a host of new skills and knowledge, from plotting and characters to police procedurals and thriller writing. You will also get the opportunity to practice pitching a novel idea to real publishers!

This packed and inspiring masterclass in the art of writing fiction will be led by one of Scotland’s most engaging writing tutors, author Laura Marney. Laura teaches creative writing at the University of Glasgow and will be leading the masterclass, coaching young writers throughout the day.
