Triple the Mystery Writers' Workshop

Guild offers Triple the Mystery workshop on Aug. 2



Three mystery writers will share a trio of their
best writing tips at the Triple the Mystery workshop from 10 a.m. to noon, Aug.
2, at the Kirkwood Community Center, 111 S. Geyer Rd. in Kirkwood. Free to St.
Louis Writers Guild members; $5 for nonmembers.

  Authors Claire Applewhite, Fedora Amis and Pam De Voe will also lead writing exercises on suspense, openings, and credibility (with just a small shot of obsessive-compulsive syndrome).

Claire

Louis University. Her published books include The Wrong Side of Memphis, St.
Louis Hustle

Fedora Amis won the Mayhaven Fiction Prize

for her Victorian whodunit, Jack the
Ripper in St. Louis

skirts to perform as historical figures from the 1800s. She has one son,
Skimmer, who partners with Fedora in writing science fiction, fantasy and
magical realism.

incorrigible magpie for collecting seemingly irrelevant information. Last October, her first novel, A Tangled Yarn, was published in amystery-a-month book club. This year, she has two short stories coming out: onein an e-zine and one in an anthology.
