Course Description
Erik Larson's The Devil in the White City has riveted readers while also inspiring writers. A murderer and a world's fair make for a compelling premise; but it's Larson’s storytelling skills that turn the book into a model for writers to learn from.

In this class, we will dig into the foundational components of the book, including character, plot, and setting. After analyzing the craft of the storytelling, class participants will walk away with skills they can apply to their own writing.
