Writers & readers of true crime are invited to The True Crime Workshop on February 8-9, 2014 in Fondren Hall at the Scarritt- Bennett Center in Nashville, Tennessee, a place rich in history and full of legends and stories. The Scarritt- Bennett Center was chosen specifically for its history, mission statement, and architecture. The gothic stone and stained glass windows, original furnishings, lush gardens, and wooden beams look like a “Harry Potter” movie.
The workshop has multiple purposes, One is to write better true crime. Successful true crime authors, to include Cathy Scott and Michael Tabman, will share their success stories while explaining the “do’s and don’ts” of true crime writing. Several law enforcement professionals and nonprofit organizations will present. For example, classes will be presented on reading blood spatter and glass patterns, and a class on locating pertinent legal documentation is offered.
There will be a special event called “Lunch with the Author” where future authors and fans can share a table with a published author, publishing representatives, and law enforcement personnel to discuss ideas, ask questions, and exchange information.
Hope you will pass the word on and you can attend. See The Tennessee True Crime Workshop
