No matter what kind of mystery you want to write — police procedural, psychological thriller, or cozy — this is the workshop for you! Attendees will learn how to create a strong, relatable protagonist, craft a satisfying puzzle, and build tension. We’ll also address how to make your author’s “voice” distinctive and compelling. The workshop will be followed by a signing of Dennis Palumbo’s latest mystery thriller set in Pittsburgh, Head Wounds.
