Researching and Writing True Crime [Rebecca Morris]
Introductory | Whether a 50-year-old case or a present-day one, writing about crime is different than any other genre. As Agatha Christie said, the crime is the end of the story. An author must learn why it happened and how it affected the community. This class will address how to obtain documents, research cold cases, find sources, and conduct sensitive interviews. It will also cover the market, from books to podcasts to television and films, and how to break into the genre.
Rebecca Morris is a New York Times bestselling true crime author and award-winning journalist.
