Unravelling Crime: The Gosling Girl Crime Workshop

Step into the world of Jacqueline Roy’s gripping novel, “The Gosling Girl,” and immerse yourself in a thought-provoking workshop. Jacqueline Roy’s skilful storytelling and compassionate portrayal of complex characters will captivate your imagination and leave a lasting impact.

Join us for an event that delves into the complexities of justice, identity, and the impact of systemic racism on individuals and society.

In “The Gosling Girl”, black detective Natalie Tyler is uncomfortable in her role as a police officer. Through discussion of her character and a written exercise that will focus on character development (no previous writing experience is necessary for this, but please bring pen and paper), we will consider the conventions of the crime fiction genre, the role of the detective and possible reasons for the relative absence of crime novels by black writers.

“The Gosling Girl Crime Workshop” offers a unique opportunity to gain insights into the writing process and to discuss important social issues in fiction. Whether you’re an avid reader, a budding writer, or simply intrigued by crime narratives, this workshop promises to be an enriching experience.

Don’t miss the chance to engage with Jacqueline Roy, delve into the depths of “The Gosling Girl,” and examine the complexities of crime and racism. Reserve your spot today and join us for an unforgettable journey into the heart of this powerful novel.

Please note that copies of “The Gosling Girl” will be available for purchase at the event, and Jacqueline Roy will be present for book signings and personal interactions. Secure your place now and immerse yourself in the captivating world of crime fiction with “The Gosling Girl Crime Workshop.”
