2012 Summer Literary Showcase - Mystery Writers Conference

This year's participants will spend four event-filled days in beautiful Northern California writing, workshopping, networking, and perfecting their craft with a celebrated faculty featuring prize-winning authors including conference keynote speaker Don  Winslow (New York Times bestselling author of Savages--adapted to film by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Oliver Stone, The Dawn Patrol, and the forthcoming The Kings of Cool: A Prequel to Savages); Cara Black (Author of the Aimée Leduc Investigation series); Tarquin Hall (Author of the Vish Purimysteries); Karin Slaughter (Internationally bestselling author of the Grant County series) and others. 

We’re excited to announce the 19th Annual Book Passage Mystery Writers Conference. This Conference has a strong tradition of great authors and teachers. Mystery writers learn all the clues to a successful writing career. Editors, agents, and publishers share with participants what they need to know to get published. Authors offer classes on setting, dialogue, suspense and point of view. Panels of detectives, forensic experts, and other crime-fighting professionals provide invaluable information that allows writers to put realism into their work. We’re proud of the successful mystery writers who began their careers at this conference.
