Esme Addison goes Between the Lines with Rachel Howzell Hall to talk about her twisty new novel of murder and family secrets, WE LIE HERE; Dr. Bryan Robinson offers up some sage advice for writers; and Michael Sears chats with Sally Andrew in this month’s Africa Scene. Plus, we get up close with Tess Gerritsen, Nadine Matheson, David Bell, Kate White, Simon Toyne, Melissa Albert, and dozens more authors of this season’s sizzling new releases. The July issue of The Big Thrill is live now—and it’s hot.

ITW’s Ninth Annual Online Thriller School – Registration is Open!

In this TEN-week program, which begins September 13, 2022, the craft of thriller writing will be front and center. Each instructor will teach an aspect of craft during a live Zoom session, will provide written materials for further reading along with study suggestions (when applicable), and will offer an entire week of online Q&A with the registered students. Classes will be held every Tuesday at 2:00 p.m. Eastern.

The goal is simple: to make each student a better writer.

Attendance is limited, and we sold out last year, so please register today or CLICK HERE to find the full 2022 schedule, FAQ, and instructor bios.

Registration for the ten-week online course is $495.

Please note: If you are unable to attend any of the live classes, they will all be recorded. The recordings are typically available within a few hours of the conclusion of the class, and we make those available to the students right away. You’ll also have access to the recordings for at least one year after the class is over.
