Get ready, because Canada Writes' next Twitter Challenge is coming up tomorrow morning. It'll be a doozy—twelve hours of Tweets beginning at 9 a.m. ET (6 a.m. PT).
We've partnered with Crime Writers of Canada for this challenge, and six of their members (Cathy Ace, Peggy Blair, Sean Chercover, Elizabeth Duncan, Owen Laukkanen and Chevy Stevens) will be reading all of the Tweets as they come in.
It's too early for us to reveal the exact call for the challenge, but we can let you know that it will be related to our current series: Characters in Crime.
The Crime Writers of Canada will help determine the longlist for the prize but the winner(s) will be chosen by mystery writer Gail Bowen. We spoke with her about the importance of strong characters in crime fiction.
During the beginning of May, Canada Writes will be looking at compelling characters in crime fiction. We’ve recruited some of the Crime Writers of Canada to offer us insider advice on how to create memorable sleuths and villains.
Former private investigator and crime novelist Sean Chercover lets us in on how your villain is really just another protagonist who violently disagrees with your protagonist.
