Looking for intrigue and suspense? Develop a fast-paced and marketable mystery or thriller in this workshop with John Reed. 

This is a class for working writers who want to develop a taut, fast-paced marketable mystery or thriller. In these six weekly sessions, we’ll explore the elements of craft needed to bring a professional shine to your work: character, dialog, scene, plot, structure, and strategies for editing and revision.

You’ll learn professional tips and tricks for developing intrigue and suspense, and why the four most important words in the mystery writer’s vocabulary are: Time Is Running Out. Our goal is to help you elevate the craft of writing into the art of the mystery/thriller.
