Mystery writers workshop set for Nov. 13


Learn how to write a riveting page-turner during a Mystery Writers Workshop at 2 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 13, at the Daytona Beach Regional Library at City Island, 105 E. Magnolia Ave.

Florida authors Veronica Hart, Joan King and Lois Gerber will begin the workshop with a writing exercise, then move on to a discussion of plot and character development, creating suspects, following proper police procedure, and planting red herrings along the way.

They will also talk about the difference between mystery and suspense and creating believable protagonists for specific types of mystery novels. For instance, “cozy mysteries” are different from police procedurals.

This is the second in a three-part series of writers workshops. The final program, set for Jan. 29, will address romance writing.

The workshops are sponsored by the Friends of the Daytona Beach Library. Reservations are not required.
