Mystery Writing Workshop

Do you have an idea for a great mystery? Would you like to write a crime novel, but don’t know where to begin? Do you need some time for yourself just to work on these ideas? Join Aaron Stander and accomplices for a four-day retreat that will allow you to consider the basics of mystery and crime writing.

Monday, June 30, 2014 to Thursday, July 3, 2014

Registration Fee: $400

Registration is closed.

Join author Aaron Stander to explore the building blocks of the mystery and crime genre including openings and endings, scene development, point of view, narrative voice, the art of detection and police procedures. Along the way, you will have many opportunities to write and share new sketches that could become a part of your first book. In the evenings, there will be opportunities for readings, tutorials, extended workshops and other non-felonious activities. Participants need to bring their own laptops and be willing to share their work with other group members. While the focus will be on developing new material, there may be time to examine prior manuscripts.
