Craft on Draft: The Suspense is Killing Me!

Alfred Hitchcock famously insisted that all suspense requires a ticking clock. Regardless of genre, authors who want to thrill their audiences know they must harness the power of expectation, uncertainty, and nerve-wracking tension to keep readers turning the page. Join authors Dan Fogarty (Kill the Prince), Henriette Lazaridis (Terra Nova), and Lise Haines (Book of Knives) for a captivating discussion about how the crucial element of suspense can electrify your story.

This hybrid event will take place in person at Porter Square Books: Boston Edition (50 Liberty Dr. Boston, MA 02210) on the GrubStreet Stage. Porter Square Books will be livestreaming this event via Crowdcast, so you can tune in virtually or watch the recording later if you can't make the in-person event!

No in-person registration required. Register to attend virtually on Crowdcast here.

Craft on Draft is a reading series created and managed by alumni of GrubStreet's Novel Incubator program and devoted to great fiction—and the mechanics behind it. Three authors read and discuss their work, plus that of one lucky audience member.
