Mystery stories have something to offer writers of multiple genres. Mysteries are modern day morality tales, full of struggles between good and evil, with an inherent expectation that justice will be served in the end. And one of the most prevalent conventions of a good mystery is a strong opening hook, luring the reader to follow the plot down a dark alley.
In this workshop, taught by a Macavity- and Agatha-nominated mystery author, we will explore how to develop a strong opening scene. Then we’ll take a closer look at scene tension and explore how to keep the reader turning the pages until the very end—no matter the story you’re telling.
