Murder Mystery Writing Workshop with Valerie Wilson Wesley

Always wanted to be a modern-day Agatha Christie or Arthur Conan Doyle? Have you ever read a mystery novel and knew you could come up with a better plot? Join Valerie Wilson Wesley as she shows you how it’s done. With insight from her own experiences in writing mystery novels, Valerie will discuss the crafting of character, setting and pace that are essential to writing a stand-out mystery novel or cozy.
The workshop will take place via Zoom. Cost is $25 for 1.5 hours. Register here. A Zoom link will be sent via email after registration.
Valerie Wilson Wesley is the author of A Glimmer of Death, the first book in a new cozy series published in January, 2021. She is also the author of the popular Tamara Hayle Mystery series as well as three stand-alone novels, two paranormal romances written under the pen name Savanna Welles, and six books for children.
