• Writing Crime Fiction LIBA 9360

    Our interactive Writing Crime Fiction course helps you prepare and complete your crime fiction novel or short story collection for submission to agents and editors. Improve your ability to rewrite your own material and critique the writing of your peers through presentation, discussion and evaluation of works in progress. Learn about paths to publication and what you need, beyond great writing, to succeed as an published author.


    You must have completed our LIBA 9340 Novel Writing 2: How to Develop Your Novel course or an approved equivalent or you must have written a novel or short story manuscript (published or unpublished) containing a minimum of 10,000 words. After you have registered for this course, you must submit 4 to 6 pages of your crime fiction writing to celiberal@georgebrown.ca for assessment by the course co-ordinator. Submissions must be received no later than 7 business days following your registration in the course; if you do not meet this requirement, you will be withdrawn from the course.
