Crime writing workshop to be held on Isle of Wight

Tourists taking Isle of Wight holidays this week will be able to get an insight into the world of murder mystery novels when a workshop is held on the island about the subject.

Author Meirion James Trow - who is better known as MJ Trow - will be giving a talk at Newport Library on June 17th 2010.

Isle of Wight Council cabinet member responsible for leisure and tourism George Brown said he is delighted the writer will be hosting the event.

He added: "It's not often that budding authors have the chance to learn from professional writers, especially free of charge."

Viewers of Richard and Judy's Channel 4 talk show may remember MJ Trow, as he once appeared on the programme to chat with the pair.

The event is being held on the Isle of Wight as part of the national celebrations for Crime Fiction Week, which is held by the Crime Writers' Association until June 20th.
