CONFERENCE SESSION OUTLINE:


SESSION 1: Plotting for Forward Momentum

A great thriller keeps readers up turning pages, vowing to read “just one more chapter" and one more after that. This workshop examines how, exactly, thriller writers make that happen. The session will be packed with tips and tricks for capturing and holding the reader's attention, making the reader care, and how to infuse a story with suspense and action, building momentum while leaving room to grow so that it can build to a no-holds-barred finale.
 

INSTRUCTOR: Hallie Ephron

New York Times bestselling author Hallie Ephron grew up in a family of writers and a household filled with books. Her parents were Henry and Phoebe Ephron who wrote screenplays for classic movies like Carousel and Daddy Long Legs. Hallie was the last of their four daughters (she's #3 of Nora, Delia, Hallie, Amy) to start writing or, as she calls it, succumb to her genes. Now Hallie writes thrillers that she hopes keep readers up nights. A three-time finalist for the Mary Higgins Clark Award, Hallie's most recent suspense novel, Night Night, Sleep Tight, was published in March, 2015. She is also the author of PHOTOPLAY: A Short Tale of Suspense, Never Tell a Lie, Come and Find Me, and There Was an Old Woman. Hallie teaches writing at workshops and conferences across the country. Her Writing and Selling Your Mystery Novel: How to Knock 'Em Dead with Style (Writer's Digest Books) was nominated for Edgar and Anthony awards. Hallie is also is an award-winning crime fiction book reviewer for the Boston Globe.





SESSION 2: Writing the Historical Thriller


The Historical Thriller is one of the most popular genres of them all, sure to attract the eye of editor, agent, or reader. Think Ken Follett, Steve Berry, David Morrell. In this conference session, New York Times Bestselling Author William Martin, considered "the best writer of historical suspense in the business today," will take you through the process of creating a historical thriller, from research to rewrite, from the initial plot hook to the big idea. When do you know you've done enough research? Once you've done it, how do you use your research to construct plot and create drama? What truths do you owe your historical characters? And most importantly, what do you owe the reader? As he answers the basic questions, he will offer the kind of universal insights that work for thrillers any time, any place, from a thousand years ago to the present to a thousand years in the future.
 

INSTRUCTOR: William Martin

William Martin is the New York Times bestselling author of 10 novels, an award-winning PBS documentary on the life of George Washington, and one of the cheesiest horror movies of all time. He's had New York Times bestsellers, starting with his first novel, Back Bay, in his 20s, 30s, 40s, and 50s, and he's made many other bestseller lists, too, while chronicling the American story from the Mayflower in 1620 to the South Tower on 9/11. Of his latest, Doris Kearns Goodwin has said, "I am a huge William Martin fan, but The Lincoln Letter is my absolute favorite." His book reviews have appeared in the Boston Globe and the Washington Independent Book Review. He has also taught fiction writing at the Harvard Extension School and the famed Maui Writers Conference and has appeared before hundreds of audiences, like the US Naval Institute Conference (1997), the American College of Trial Lawyers (2008), and the Library of Congress National Book Festival (2013). He was the 2005 recipient of the New England Book Award, given to "an author whose body of work stands as a significant contribution to the culture of the region." And his writing will earn him the prestigious Samuel Eliot Morison Award from the USS Constitution Museum later this year. He lives near Boston, where he's working on his eleventh novel, about the Gold Rush.




SESSION 3: 
Maximum Thrills in Your Thriller — A Writer's Checklist


Perhaps more than any other genre, a great thriller builds upon a strong conceptual idea that fuels a killer dramatic premise. But there is a short list of other criteria and opportunities that await the enlightened writer, all of which will be defined, delivered and positioned for maximum reader impact through optimized thriller story physics – the underlying forces of storytelling.
 

INSTRUCTOR: Larry Brooks

SESSION 4: Thriller vs. Mystery: What the heck is it and why does it matter to you?


There are plenty of similarities between mysteries and thrillers, and sometimes plenty of overlap. But there are important differences as well, including some outright contradictions.
