CCWC Writing a Cozy Mystery
Aug 5 @ 4:30 pm – 6:30 pm

Edith/Maddie teaches her popular course, How to Write Mysteries and Cozies, for the annual Cape Cod Writers’ Conference, held virtually this year.

Some say a murder mystery is “formulaic” – but is it? This course explores the elements of the traditional mystery – character, setting, plot, puzzle – with examples from the cozy mystery. We’ll look at hooks, suspense, red herrings, and the conventions of the subgenre. Participants will work on their own ideas and should bring their work-in-progress if they have one.

Note: you must be registered for the conference to attend.
