Discover How to Craft a riveting Mystery

The pulse of any story is the plot, and just like a heartbeat, the beats of your story propel the audience forward. Whether you are a planner or a pantser, we will guide you through the basic beats that form the skeleton of every great mystery.

Do you know how to craft an effective hook?
How do you find a way to hide clues along the way without giving too much away?
How should the detective reveal the criminal to the audience and other characters?

Our favorite mysteries involve an interesting puzzle to solve, but without a solid plot to support it, even the most interesting crime can become boring. Weaving a compelling, cohesive, and memorable plot is at the center of every writer's journey.

Join our two live 90-minute interactive workshops, designed to empower you with the skills needed to craft exciting mysteries that keep readers turning pages! Then get expert feedback on your own completed plot beat sheet.
