Florida Writers Association ST. Petersburg to Offer
“Mystery in a Month,” an Innovative Workshop for Aspiring Mystery Writers

This spring the Florida Writers Association St. Petersburg is offering a hands-on workshop for Bay Area mystery writing enthusiasts. Under the guidance of three successful Florida mystery writers and a team of professional editors, workshop participants will spend three Saturday afternoons learning the intricacies of developing, writing and marketing a mystery short story.

The workshops will be spaced at two-week intervals to give participants time to complete their mystery before the last session, which will be used for a final critique and to provide participants with help in developing a marketing strategy for their story.

WORKSHOP DATES: April 17, May 1, and May 15
LOCATION: The perfect setting...A Corner of England Tea Room, 6297 Central Avenue, St. Petersburg, Florida 33710.

Diane Sawyer, author of The Cinderella Murders and other Avalon Mysteries. (May 15). A team of professional editors will help participants develop and write a marketable mystery short story.
