Stories that Grip: Techniques for Creating Suspense in Any Genre (ages 13-18)
Free, 3 hour creative writing class! Students will leave with a recipe for suspense and start crafting (or revising) the first pages of a can’t-put-it-down-story.
Whether you're writing mystery, horror, suspense (or really, any fictional genre), your first job is to get your reader hooked. How do you pull that off? We'll look at clips from Jordan Peele's movies and opening pages from recent young adult thrillers by authors like Tiffany Jackson, Courtney Summers, Ann Dávila Cardinal, and Nova Ren Suma to identify the ingredients that create a sense of grip and get insights into how creators create pulse-raising stories. For writers age 13 - 18 only.View more
