Tim Wohlforth: The Art and Allure of the Mystery Short Story
Tim Wohlforth, author and Pushcart Prize nominee, will present The Art and Allure of the Mystery Short Story: A Workshop for Readers and Writers on Friday, June 15th, 6pm at Pioneer Hall across from Lithia Park. The event is free and open to the public and light refreshments will be served. Registration is requested as a courtesy to the sponsors.
The short story is uniquely suited to the twists and turns of the mystery. If you’ve ever dreamed about writing a mystery, now is your chance to investigate the secrets of this literary short form. You’ll get some great experience writing and reading tight, taut mystery in this hands-on workshop.
And if writing isn't
in the immediate future, that's fine too. Wohforth has an amazing
grasp of the craft of crime fiction -- you'll learn about the
technical aspects of constructing a mystery and understand why you
love to read them.
For those hungry for books, bring
a couple of mysteries to swap with fellow mystery readers.
Tim Wohlforth's writing workshop is sponsored by the Ashland Mystery
Readers Group and the Friends of the Ashland Public Library.
