There are all types of mystery niches in which to write stories: amateur detective, police procedural, government agency, spies, private detectives, capers, cozies, romantic suspense. Even paranormal mysteries.
Any one of them could be a comedic mystery.

Why? Because comedy is in the characters, in the presentation. In the “voice” of the story.
Are there good and bad comedic elements? Does comedy have to run through the entire story? How does one deal with crime and manage to keep the reader smiling, perhaps laughing out loud, and still present a satisfying story? Particularly if the crime scene is a gruesome one.

Well, that’s what this workshop is determined to lay out for your consideration.
Comedy and mystery have been rubbing shoulders since the Golden Age of Mystery, and likely before it, too. Join me to see what it takes to mix grins, snickers and laughs with murder (and other crimes) most foul.
