I am again teaching A STUDY IN MYSTERY at the University of Utah as part of the lifelong learning program. We're only a week into it, still room if you want to join up.

Lifelong Learning - University of Utah

UofUWednesday Nights
May 11th — June 15th
6:30-9:00 p.m.

University of Utah Annex Building
1901 E South Campus Drive
SLC, UT 84112
After a successful debut, I will again be teaching this genre class about Mysteries in the Summer Semester. Check back for links when registration opens.

UofULLLook behind the curtain of the formulaic, but eternally popular genre: the Mystery Story. Learn about the constructions, tropes, types and methods that make the modern whodunit. Designed for both writers and fans of the mystery genre, class will include assignments and activities on plot, character web, record keeping, suspense, tension and conflict. Refine your work as you’re asked the questions: Did you hide the clue well enough? Does the audience care about the victim? Is the suspense tight enough? By the end of the course, if the crime is writing a mystery story, the “Whodunit” will be you!
