I'm new to the list. I wanted to start by letting folks know about a mystery
writing workshop being offered online. It's "Writing Mysteries and Thrillers: An
Online Caper Committed by Carla Coupe, on the web, with a laptop.'"
The Antioch Writers’ Workshop, July 10 - 16,
2004, can help you take your mystery writing to
the next level.
This summer, our workshop faculty features two
mystery authors, both of whom began as
Kathy Hogan Trocheck (aka Mary Kay
Andrews), whose Savannah Blues was
nominated for the Edgar Award in 2003, first
came to the Antioch Writers’ Workshop in 1993,
where she met and studied with Sue Grafton.
Since that time, she has published 12 novels,
including eight Callahan Garrity mysteries. Her
13th novel, Hissy Fit, will be published in
Sharon Short also started her mystery-writing
career at the Antioch Writers’ Workshop, and
the second novel in her Josie Toadfern mystery
series, Death by Deep Dish Pie, will be
published in July 2004.
Participants will have the opportunity to
workshop their mystery manuscript in a one-
week mystery intensive session, and one-on-
one manuscript consultations with either Kathy
or Sharon are still available.
More information about the program, located in
Yellow Springs, OH, is available on the Web at
