Imagine spending a week with some of Canada’s top mystery writing minds: picking their brains, learning their techniques, and getting the how to’s of writing a successful mystery novel.The Salt Spring Island Mystery Writing Retreat is being sponsored by Simon Fraser University’s Summer Publishing Workshop and runs from June 6th to 12th. More information here.
