About this Event

This writing class is for anyone who wants to craft a memorable and impactful sense of place in their work. Writing place is important for any story, regardless of genre. But in mystery and thrillers? It's gotta be to die for. Get tips and tricks from Famous in Cedarville author Erica Wright while taking a look at how successful thrillers and mysteries solve the problem of "where to hide the body."
