All Levels | Investigate effective ways to author a tantalizing mystery and fulfill reader expectations. We will discuss ideas for pushing the envelope and ways to create hybrid mysteries, and we’ll complete in-class writing exercises that apply to your work-in-process. Discussion topics will include the ingredients essential to keeping your reader up at night, the contemporary mystery reader’s expectations, how to plant clues and hook your reader, the way suspense builds, and much more.
Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Winter quarter 2021.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
