Please note: we are still confirming these dates, finalizing the curriculum, and adding faculty to this workshop–but we wanted to let you know it’s in progress!
For writers eager to begin or complete a mystery for middle grade readers.
Children love to cozy up with a good mystery. What they love even more is finding out that the clever characters in Book One have more stories to tell. In this workshop, you will explore the foundations of a stand-alone mystery along with the elements needed to create a successful middle grade or chapter book mystery series.
The workshop will begin each day with a lecture. Lecture topics include developing a protagonist your readers will love, how to conceal clues, and hooking your readers early on. You will have time to write and revise your own project as well as meet one-on-one with our mentors for feedback.
