Look behind the curtain of the formulaic but eternally popular genre: the Mystery Story. Learn about the constructions, tropes, types, and methods that make the modern whodunit. Designed for both writers and fans of the mystery genre, class will include assignments and activities on plot, character web, record-keeping, suspense, tension, and conflict. Refine your work as you're asked the questions: Did you hide the clue well enough? Does the audience care about the victim? Is the suspense tight enough? By the end of the course, if the crime is writing a mystery story, the "Whodunit" will be you!
