Workshop Writing a Suspense Story

Writing well is hard enough, but writing suspense is a whole different story. How do you go about measuring out information and building the tension towards a nail-biting climax? Thriller author René Appel is an expert in this and will teach you the basic principles of suspense writing in this workshop. And then you can just get going. René Appel has been writing thrillers since the eighties and is viewed as the godfather of the Dutch psychological thriller. His work has been awarded the ‘Gouden Strop’ (Golden Noose) several times and his novel Schone Handen (2015) was made into a feature film by Tjebbo Penning.

This workshop will be in Dutch and is presented in collaboration with the Schrijversacademie.
