About the event
January 28 – The Structure of a Mystery: Upping the Stakes in Any Novel by Edwin Hill
In this hands-on writing workshop, we will investigate the structure of a mystery novel as a means to increase the tension and the momentum in your novel. Using the three-act structure as a model, we will carefully examine elements such as the inciting incident, the midpoint, and the climax, while paying close attention to the elements that make for a successful first act, including scene development. In the last section of the course, we will shift over to character development, focusing on using motivation to create compelling characters.
You will need a notepad, a pack of index cards, and a pen during class. While this workshop is intended for crime fiction writers, fiction writers of other genres may find it useful and are welcome to attend.
Deadline to register and pay: January 26
Participation limited to first 40 registrants.
