This fascinating class shows writers how to mix true crime stories with fiction writing craft. The result is writing that is realistic yet highly engaging. Students will learn how to create criminal characters that live quietly within the common fabric of society until they pull a trigger, grab a knife or concoct a poison. Cases like the one of a Sunday-school teacher who murdered two husbands, illustrate how to develop authentic motivations for their murderous characters. Students will also learn how to write from the POV of a criminal. "Inside the Criminal Mind" covers the childhood backgrounds and the specific mind-set of murderers, rapist, robbers, and serial killers. This information is critical to making criminally inclined characters multi-dimensional and real.

When: February 6, 2012 through March 4, 2012
