In this workshop with Noah Weisz participants will learn about structure, suspicion, and suspense while exploring the craft secrets of clues and red herrings. You’ll get to plan out and draft part or all of your own mystery short story—and before the workshop’s over, we’ll try to crack each other’s cases!
