Finding Dark Places: Writing the Mystery Novel

Elizabeth Buzzelli Books

Students will bring a novel in progress or a solid idea for a mystery novel to the first class. We will begin with beginnings – a crucial element as book buyers often buy on the strength of the opening. We will study the arc of the novel: plot, characterization, red herrings, forensics, and ending. We will also discuss publishing. Students will be writing during and between classes, and sharing their work in class. The objective is for students to help each other progress with their stories. Each student should come determined to write a publishable mystery novel.

Elizabeth Kane Buzzelli is a mystery writer, journalist, short story and essay writer, teacher and speaker. Her 12th novel, Manners and Murder, will be released Spring 2018. Her other novels include Gift of Evil, Dead Dogs and Englishmen, and She Stopped for Death. She also has received many awards for her writing and journalism.
