Suspenseful Writing

Introductory | Why are some books impossible to put down? It’s simple: When an important outcome is unknown, people can hardly think of anything else. It’s that yearning to turn the pages in order to find out what happens next. Suspense is what makes great stories so absorbing, and it’s why your favorite show is so ridiculously bingeable. We’ll explore extremely practical methods for writing suspensefully, and we’ll learn how to make scenes that leave the reader burning to turn pages.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online until further notice. If there's a possibility that your class might take place in person, you will be notified in advance. Even if classes can be held in person, there will always be a hybrid option to participate via Zoom.

Classes with "Zoom" in the title will be held via Zoom even after our doors open. Classes listed as "Online" will be held on Wet Ink, our platform for asynchronous learning.
