Writing True Crime

The market for true crime books, podcasts and documentaries has never been better. In this session, New York Times bestselling true crime author Rebecca Morris will discuss how writing true crime is different than any other genre. Whether a cold case or a contemporary one, there are challenges involving research and conducting interviews with victims and their families as well as with the convicted. She will also discuss the advantages and disadvantages of working with a co-author, writing a successful book proposal, finding a publisher, and the decision to go the self-published route.
