What makes stories stand out most in this genre? What are the pros and cons of writing crime and thrillers? What are the genre-specific rules that any writer needs to know? How can you ensure that your writing stands out in the very competitive marketplace of crime publishing? And lots of questions taken from our audience on the night!
