Join us for a virtual mystery writing workshop with Mia P. Manansala, author of Arsenic and Adobo and Homicide and Halo-Halo.
The Challenges and Advantages of Amateur Sleuths
Why are amateur sleuths so popular? What are the unique challenges of having one as your protagonist and what are the benefits? This session will answer these questions and more as we dissect amateur sleuths in popular fiction and learn how to make the most out of this common character trope through discussion and exercises.
