Tuesday 11th March, 8pm (GMT)
Well-known crime author of The TV Detective series and popular Swanwick course leader Simon will be joining us for the next #askswanwick Twitter chat.
Our questions-and-answers sessions, with experienced writers and industry professionals, is a great chance to learn from people in the know and raise questions you might not get the chance to ask.
Simon has also written a play based on the books, "An Unnecessary Murder", which premiered last year as a charitable performance. Simon is a sought after speaker, appearing at a variety of prestigious literary festivals. His talks combine an insight into his writing work, along with some extraordinary anecdotes from the life of a television reporter, including the now notorious story of "What to do when you really need a dead otter". Simon has also been a popular faculty member at Swanwick over several years and will be coming back in 2014 to share his expertise at the Summer School. His introduction to adding a surprise development in the middle of your novel has been long remembered by previous course attendants!
Don't be afraid to join in our Twitter chat. They're a little Wild West by their very nature, but good fun - and always enlightening. To follow our chat with Simon on Twitter on 11th March at 8pm, simply search for #askswanwick. To ask a question, start by writing #askswanwick followed by your question. Our team has put together a short guide to joining in the chat and chat etiquette. You can find it here.
#askswanwick will also return on 7th April, with literary agent and Swanwick course leader Meg Davies.
Selected highlights from last month's chat are available here.
Many thanks from the Swanwick Twitter Team - Karin, Benjamin, Ruth, Andrew and Mike
