It’s a known fact that setting can be its own character. Many books, movies, and other forms of entertainment have used the setting to create both emotion and movement in a plot. But creating the character of your setting isn’t always easy, and the genre you’re writing in can greatly affect how your setting plays out. When crafting a mystery, you can use the setting to mirror character actions and set the perfect tone for your carefully crafted case. This workshop will explore how setting is used in mystery stories and why it’s so effective.

Lesson One: Sub-Genre and Settings - Learn how to pick your setting based on your mystery sub-grene (or how to effectively go against the grain).

Lesson Two: Descriptive Writing - Learn ways to craft prose that helps set the scene in your story, without going overboard.

Lesson Three: Scenery Change - Understand how to effectively change your scenery when moving characters around the map.
