Three workshops in one, focused on writing strong stories with mystery at their centre.
Research with E.C. Bell
Learn how to weave in your research without weighing down pacing; what to exclude/include in your narrative; how to lay down the trail to the central secret; and more. Exercises will include real world research for setting.
Plotting with S.G. Wong:
Explore how strong characterization leads to compelling plots that keep the reader intrigued and guessing until the all-important reveal—and then some. Exercises will focus on reverse engineering plot points and the basic building blocks of character.
Narrative Voice with J.E. Barnard:
Delve into elements including narrator selection, elements of voice, simple obfuscation, and the risky option of the unreliable narrator. Exercises will focus on shifting points of view and narrator sketches.
