This multi-week class series will be taught on Zoom. It will start on Thursday, January 19 and end on February 23 for six consecutive Thursdays.
If you’ve ever stayed up ‘til three with a compelling novel, you’ve probably wondered, “How do they do that?” Study the literary techniques of popular genres and learn how to create compelling plots in a unique voice, by harnessing the conflict and tension between sympathetic protagonists and disquieting antagonists. Whether your characters inhabit the extreme world of detection and intrigue, or the everyday life of private agonies and personal satisfactions, your writing can benefit from that special “can’t-put-it-down” magic.
Joanne Dobson, a former English professor at Fordham University, is the author of the Professor Karen Pelletier mystery series from Doubleday and Poisoned Pen Press. She won an Agatha nomination for Quieter Than Sleep, the first book in the series, the novels have been widely reviewed, including in the New York Times, and in 2001 the adult- readers division of the New York Library Association named her Noted Author of the Year, as the writer whose books they most enjoyed recommending to their patrons.
This class will be taught via Zoom. The Zoom link will be emailed at the time of registration and again in the day before the course. Please check spam folders and write to [email protected] with any questions.
