Mystery NYC
Nothing quickens the pulse faster than a good mystery, which is why millions of readers surrender themselves to the page-turning exploits of their favorite sleuths.  Mystery is an expansive genre, welcoming amateur detectives, intellectual puzzle-solvers, policemen, private eyes, lawyers, spies, even average folk caught in a web of suspense.  If crime is a central element, consider it a mystery.   

To write riveting mysteries, you must merge the skills of a fiction writer with the clever tricks of the mystery trade. In our courses, you will learn about the various types of mysteries and their special requirements, as well as fundamentals of fiction craft.

Whether you seek to write short stories or novels, classic puzzlers or crime fiction, we’ll show you how to capture readers.
