Track 3–Reading Like a Writer: Agatha Christie's The Murder of Roger Ackroyd
In this session we will all have read the same book, one that you have probably read before, Agatha Christie's The Murder of Roger Ackroyd. We'll look at it from the point of view of craft--how does Christie use point of view? How does she play with the reader's expectations? Should she have been kicked out of the Detection Club? (More about that at the session.) This early Christie work is what put her firmly on the path of success. What can we learn from her?

Some participants may decide to increase their number of pitches by choosing shorter lines. Others might decide to wait in a longer line for that special agent or editor. If the agent or editor is interested in reading your work, he or she will tell you how to submit it. Please don’t bring your submissions with you to the session! As the conference approaches, we will be updating the website with the bios of the agents and editors who will be receiving pitches.

Expert Session 1–Canine CSI

K9 trainer, handler, and retired game warden Roger Guay and his partner, Saba, will take you on a journey to show you how canines use their capabilities to find both people and evidence, including tracking fleeing suspects, locating spent shells, discarded handguns, hidden money and buried bodies. You will learn how canines are invaluable at solving both human and wildlife crimes. During his 25 years as a Maine game warden, Roger worked on hundreds of searches and recoveries utilizing canines. His agency’s canine teams became some of the best in the country at tracking, evidence recovery, and cadaver searches. Maine is heavily forested and searching for evidence or a body is often like looking for the proverbial needle in a haystack. That lore can readily translate to city parks, parking lots, or other crime scenes where human resources can become overwhelmed. Roger & Saba will show you the science behind the scenes, the tools, and how canines play the most important role in these daunting operations.

Expert Session 2–Building a Platform with Podcasting

The podcast Crime Writers On... started when husband and wife true crime authors Rebecca Lavoie and Kevin Flynn got some fellow writers together discuss the blockbuster podcast Serial. That was in December of 2014 and it has since morphed into a broader conversation about true crime, journalism, and pop culture. It has also garnered a viral following of approximately 100,000 listeners per episode that includes fans in the U.S., Canada, the United Kingdom and even Australia. In the spring of 2016, the podcast secured regular sponsorship.


Hosts Rebecca Lavoie, Kevin Flynn, Toby Ball and Lara Bricker will talk about how they’ve used the emerging field of podcast as writers to build a platform. They’ll also delve into how they chose topics for the podcast, how the show is produced and how they built their audience. They will also discuss how the hit podcast Serial has led to not only their podcast but a number of other shows.
