Using examples from best-selling literary fiction, mysteries, fantasy, and even memoirs, you’ll learn professional techniques for weaving compelling mystery and suspense into your book, regardless of genre.
In the class we will:
- Discuss how to incorporate the mystery novel structure into non-mystery genres, such as literary fiction, memoir, sci-fi, and fantasy
- Study the use of the elements of mystery in wildly different award-winning and best-selling books, such as: "The Round House" by Louise Erdrich, "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone" by J.K. Rowling, and "Dreams from My Father" by Barack Obama
- Learn to ask questions both big and small to keep readers intrigued
- Talk about how to craft clues, red herrings, plot twists, and cliffhangers for maximum intrigue
