Limited to 12 participants.

Have you always wanted to write a thriller? Need help completing one you’ve already started? This is the workshop for you! Whether it’s a domestic noir or the CIA is chasing down your main character, we’ll spend eight weeks together working on plot, characterization, twists, dialogue, prose, and pacing. By the end of the workshop you’ll have a solid foundation for your novel. Participants should come to the workshop with a premise for their thriller in mind. After the first session, two participants a week, if they’re comfortable, will receive feedback on their writing from the instructor and the other class participants.

Important Note: At this time, our intention is to hold this workshop at the QWF office, with two virtual slots available for QWF members residing outside Montreal but within Quebec. The Atwater Library, which houses the QWF office, requires all visitors to be fully vaccinated and masked at all times. If you live outside Montreal but within Quebec and would like to attend virtually, please write to us first at workshops@qwf.org. Plans can change based on the latest public health guidelines. Please note our virtual slots are currently limited as we are still piloting our new teleconferencing equipment for workshops, and we hope to offer more virtual slots in the fall.
