Do you love to snuggle up with a cosy mystery? Or perhaps you prefer action-packed suspense or a cyber-thriller? Do you want to learn how to write a complex, twisty story? Or perhaps you ARE writing one, and you are wanting to learn how to get your novel published?

In this live streaming course, you will learn how to write a mystery story and some tips around getting our novel published!

Mysteries are one of the most widely-read genres across the globe and with both young and old, male and female readerships. In this course, you'll learn the difference between mystery, suspense and thriller, as well as some of the core fundamentals that contribute to a mystery story. You'll also learn how to plot an intriguing, complex and engrossing reading experience for the avid mystery reader.

Course outline:

  • We will look at the elements that define the mystery, the suspense and the thriller story, and the variations of the mystery.
  • We will create a clever, motivated villain, and a hero worthy of contesting them.
  • We will learn fundamental elements of a mystery such as a victim, suspect, witness, villain, crime, deceit, reveal/conceal, clues, twists and red herrings.
  • We will develop an understanding of how to combine these elements into a successful plot by using story structure as a frame for our mystery.

Learn the tools and techniques to craft complicated crimes, clever villains, and the smarter detectives who thwart them by using their powers of observation and deduction. The course includes a series of structured in-class activities with positive feedback in a supportive environment as you learn the fundamentals of crafting a mystery plot in this practical live online course.
