Where I’m Teaching

Oct 09, 2011

Mystery and Suspense workshop, U of T Summer Institute, July 7-11, 2014.

This week-long workshop (SCS 1828-008) is designed to help writers launch a manuscript or take one closer to the level demanded by agents and publishers. The days are packed with discussions about character, plot, setting, dialogue and much more.

Submissions are critiqued by me and other students in a fair, constructive way.

Other highlights include:

A welcome lunch featuring readings by all instructors, which includes great authors like Kelley Armstrong, Joy Fielding, Colin McAdam and Alissa York
A panel discussion where authors discuss the writing life
A closing lunch where selected students read from their work.

This will be my third summer leading this course and it has been a blast every time.

Register before June 7 and save $50 on the fee. Hope to see you there.
