Ninc Does Forensics

Or
C. S. I-Don't-Think-So!

Thursday, October 1, 2009, Ninc Goes Platinum is offering a full day of fascinating forensics workshops, talks, and hands-on participation.  Cardiologist Dr. Doug Lyle, co-author of several books with Retired Detective Lee Lofland on the subject of forensics, head of the Writers' Medical-Forensic Lab website, and noted expert in the field, is on board to give us the ABC's of forensics. 

Dr. Lyle and our own Trauma Nurse Extraordinaire, Eileen Dreyer, will present their stellar workshop, "Mistakes That Make The Pros Nuts," and Eileen will give us a crash course in what really happens in the trauma center to those people you shoot.  Stir in the pros from the Saint Louis Division of the FBI Academy, and representation from both the Saint Louis County Medical Examiners' Office and the Saint Louis Police, and you've got seven can't-miss-this hours of How To Do It Show And Tell. 

This is the place to be if you've ever needed to kill someone (in a book!), describe a crime scene, or crawl inside the head of your fictional villain to make him/her "real." In other words, from the psychology of the criminal mind to the pattern of the blood spatter -- you want answers, we've got answers.

Lunch is included, and all participants are invited to join the experts in a reception (drinks, munchies) afterwards – the perfect time for those individual conversations you've been dying to have with a real expert.  Pricing details appear on your Member Registration Form.

Editors, agents, and industry professionals are all invited to join us free-of-charge for the entire day, as they also need to know that those Ninc-member manuscripts hitting their desks are correct.

***The hour-by-hour details of the full day of programming
 will be posted here as the schedule is finalized.***

Space is limited to the first 175 attendees to sign up for the program; no exceptions.

Note:  You'll want to plan to arrive on Wednesday, September 30, 2009, as the can't-miss-them workshops begin at 9:00 a.m. on Thursday morning, October 1, 2009.
