Looking forward to going to Kathmandu in September with SJ Rozan to do a 10-day writers workshop “High Crimes: Mystery Writing in Nepal.” We have some sign-ups–but need more intrepid souls to make the journey with us. It should definitely be life-changing for all of us!

Here’s a description of the workshop:
All mystery whether it be short story, novel, or screenplay, demands attention to all the elements of fiction: plot, pace, point of view, character, setting, dialogue. It also requires the understanding that in a mystery something lies behind the actions of the characters, something not fully understood until the mystery is unraveled.
What better place to work on any and all these elements of your work-in-progress, or even take your first step into mystery writing, than the Himalayas?
Let the unexpected nature of life in Kathmandu kickstart your writerly creativity into high gear. Craft talks, writing exercises, and workshopping your pages will fill your days at this retreat (but with plenty of time for yoga, meditation, and exploring!) and you’ll return home accomplished, refreshed, and inspired.
