Writers & Readers In Conversation with Julie Mayhew
June 30, 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Join us at Books on the Rise for an introduction into writing crime fiction as a part of Richmond Arts and Ideas Festival. Starts at 1:30.
In cosy, informal settings, crime fiction author Alice Clark Platts will be in conversation with Julie Mayhew . She’ll talk to them about their writing process, how they got started, their inspirations, techniques, characters and plots – and of course to field questions from the audience.
About Julie Mayhew
Julie Mayhew is a journalist who became an actress (because she wanted more creative ways to tell stories), who became a scriptwriter (because she couldn’t find enough brilliant roles for women).
She is an award-winning novelist, an award-nominated radio dramatist and has written short stories and stage plays to critical acclaim. As an alumnus of the BFI NETWORK x BAFTA Crew programme and an inaugural member of BAFTA Connect, Julie now also writes and directs for the screen.
Julie’s latest book Little Nothings, a Highsmithian tale of toxic friendship and violent revenge set on the holiday island of Corfu, was published internationally by Bloomsbury in 2022, and is in development for TV with Hazey Jane Films. Previously for Bloomsbury, she wrote the critically acclaimed contemporary thriller Impossible Causes (2019), about four teenage girls accused of witchcraft in a remote British enclave, which was also optioned for TV.
