GENRE/SUBGENRE NUANCES IN WRITING MYSTERIES

Presented a week after Mother’s Day by South Carolina’s David Burnsworth, author of Southern Heat and the forthcoming Burning Heat and Big City Heat, and Georgia’s Julia McDermott, author of Underwater. Please show these out-of-town guests a warm welcome; you will learn much good information no matter what genre you write. (As we’ve always said, "All good books need mystery.") Co-sponsored by Sisters in Crime & High Point Library, 901 N. Main St. 27262 (Library opens 1:30). FREE.

INFORMAL CIRCLE DISCUSSION

This month, we'll be having an informal circle discussion (and/or small group breakouts) to help you reach your writing goals -- or come to simply listen. All writers welcome. Co-sponsored by Sisters in Crime & High Point Library, 901 N. Main St. 27262 (Library opens 1:30). FREE.

WHAT GOES ON IN THE NC MEDICAL EXAMINER’S OFFICE?

Jacque Perkins, a forensic nurse working in the NC ME’s office, will focus on one or more of these topics: human trafficking, domestic violence, sexual assault exams, forensic nursing, or the state’s Medical Examiner. Let us know well in advance your preference for which of these 5 areas Jacque could focus on that would help you in your own writing — which is the reason these programs are offered. Co-sponsored by Sisters in Crime & High Point Library, 901 N. Main St. 27262 (Library opens 1:30). FREE.
