Mystery and Suspense Master Class
Chicago Writers Studio in partnership with the Gwendolyn Brooks Center is excited to bring you this special Master Class with Award-Winning author Lori Rader-Day. Mystery and suspense stories attract a large readership and sell big. Why? Because they keep readers turning pages and asking that all-important question: What happens next?
Learn what makes these genres so addictive—and how to do the same in your own work—in this master class with Mary Higgins Clark Award-winning author Lori Rader-Day.
Students will get an introduction to the mystery genre and its subgenres, learn about the expectations readers bring to mystery novels, and learn about how to use characterization, point of view, and setting to its full mysterious potential. Students will take home a few handouts and readings to continue building their skills.
