Sophie Hannah - A Writing Masterclass

A Masterclass with Sophie Hannah

Sophie is an internationally bestselling crime writer and course director of University of Cambridge's new Master's degree in Crime & Thriller Writing. In this workshop for writers and aspiring writing, Sophie will teach participants:

• how to massively increase your chances of success

• how to change incorrect, unhelpful and limiting beliefs

• how to avoid unnecessary suffering

• how to thrive in the face of the psychological and emotional challenges that life as a writer brings with it

• what to do when you feel scared, confused, overwhelmed or stuck — in order to feel better, make progress and solve whatever problem you’re facing

• how to retain full control over your writing dreams and journey, instead of giving your power away tothe first agent or editor who shows an interest in you

• how to make sure your dreams, and your definitions of success and failure, aren’t working against you

• how to be your own best and most powerful ally and advocate, throughout your writing life

• and how to use Sophie's amazing invention, the Literary Diagnostics method (which is very different from editing), to take your writing to the next level. 

Sophie will also talk about her page turning latest thriller.

Thank you so much for inviting me to Dorchester, and looking after me so well. You and Paul run a great tight ship there and I was honoured to be a part of it this year.

Feedback From 2019 Festival

My wife and I really enjoyed our first visit to DLF to hear Henry Bloefeld. Having looked through the programme further we wished we should have chosen more, but at least we shall try to get the books via the Library. Looking forward to seeing next year’s programme.
