A crime writing course forms part of the 58th annual programme from the Boston branch of the Workers’ Educational Association.

The current term sees the start of a course in twentieth century crime writing, looking at novels by Raymond Chandler, Val McDermid and Peter Robinson.

Another course on offer is creative writing, with tips for short stories, poems and scripts and advice on generating ideas, editing and building confidence to submit for publication.

No previous experience is needed and brochures for this term are available from Fydell House, Boston Library and Blackfriars Arts Centre.

The association, a voluntary adult education provider, has had a local presence since 1954 when BBC broadcaster Hue Weldon gave a lecture.

Other speakers in the 1950s included historian LAG Strong, Lady Violet Bonham Carter, Chris Chattaway and Richie Calder, the socialist author and academic.
