October 15: MWA’s Mystery University, San Francisco

The Mystery Writers of America sponsor MWA University, where I’ll be teaching a session on Character & Dialogue.

Here’s what my students have signed up for:


Character and Dialogue

From Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple to Walter Mosley’s Easy Rawlings, character is arguably the most memorable element of a mystery novel and a series. How do you create a full-realized unique protagonist that leaps from the page? How should you develop secondary characters as well as the protagonist’s nemesis? This class will challenge you to eliminate cardboard characterizations and create something new and fresh.[/Normal_Box]
