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 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.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
