Building a Mystery [Clare Meeker & Elizabeth George]
All Levels. A dark night in an eerie place, a fast-paced, problem-filled book with a devious or humorous narrative voice, a dramatic climax, and a surprise ending. In this collaborative, multigenre workshop taught by celebrated novelist and mystery writer Elizabeth George and award-winning children’s book author Clare Hodgson Meeker, we’ll explore the basic structure, plot, and pacing of a mystery and practice developing character and setting. Participants will generate an outline, a character sketch with possible motives for good and evil actions, and a scene-grabbing setting to take away.
