Mystery & Thriller Writing

Each of the eight tutorials teaches you something new, something exciting and something important.

Your personal tutor will guide you with constructive feedback and helpful advice as you move along the journey to being a successful mystery thriller writer. Remember, every successful author was once a novice writer, just like you. 

If you have made a start at writing a novel and given up in frustration, welcome back. No new writer should struggle alone. It’s much easier when you follow the steps prepared for you – just as you would a road map. It’ll take you to a worthwhile destination. Being a writer!

Independent publishing on Amazon or Smashwords or Lulu is now an exciting new option.

In this course you’ll learn how to write all kinds of thrillers: detective; police procedural; private eye; investigative journalist; legal drama; courtroom; psycho killer; techno thriller; industrial conspiracy; spy thriller etc. (Vanda Symon studied with the Institute. See her books here.)

You choose which style you will write.

You decide whether to set your stories in a New Zealand setting or in some foreign location. Let your own specialised knowledge and life experiences provide believable descriptions of the situations and places you write about.
