In this four-week workshop, award-winning author Sheena Kamal will explore the elements of writing the modern thriller: finding a powerful hook, creating memorable characters, building suspense, and crafting a twisty, compelling plot. Each class will include a writing exercise and, at the end of the workshop, participants may submit an eight-page piece of writing for critique.
Sheena Kamal is the award-winning author of the Nora Watts series and the critically-acclaimed young adult novel Fight Like A Girl. She holds an HBA in Political Science from the University of Toronto, and was awarded a TD Canada Trust scholarship for community leadership and activism around the issue of homelessness. Her writing has been featured in The Guardian (U.K.), Bustle, The Irish Times (Ireland), Writers Digest, and Entertainment Weekly.
