Look behind the curtain of the formulaic, but eternally popular genre: the Mystery Story. Learn about the constructions, tropes, types and methods that make the modern whodunit. Designed for both writers and fans of the mystery genre, class will include assignments and activities on plot, character web, record keeping, suspense, tension and conflict. Refine your work as you’re asked the questions: Did you hide the clue well enough? Does the audience care about the victim? Is the suspense tight enough? By the end of the course, if the crime is writing a mystery story, the “Whodunit” will be you! Visit continue.utah.edu/lifelong for information.

Utah is home to some of the nation's most spectacular archaeological sites, from the famed rock art galleries of Nine Mile Canyon to the spectacular ruins of Cedar Mesa. But there are hundreds of other localities - lesser known places with names like Sego Canyon and Buckhorn Wash - where the public can experience the remnants of thousands of years of human occupation. Participants will receive a handout describing the location of over 20 fantastic public rock art sites in Utah which can be reached by car and most of these sites will be discussed in class. The rock art will be put in context of what we know of the people who created it.
