November Meeting – Show Me Descriptions in the World of Mystery
Join Mary Coley as she discusses how to ‘show’ your way to make money in mysteries. Imagery created by word choice to promote an emotional response is the key. Bring paper and pencil to this hands-on workshop. Through a series of flash prompts, you’ll create a character, a place, and a non-human you can use to populate any mysterious story.
Mary Coley, an Oklahoma native, is the award-winning author of eight mysteries set in Oklahoma, a non-fiction children’s book and numerous short stories. She received the Oklahoma Book Award for Fiction in 2022. Coley was also honored to be awarded the Tony Hillerman Award from New Mexico/Arizona Book Awards in 2018. A Tulsa area resident, she has been a member of Tulsa Nightwriters since 2002.
