“No one is who they appear to be.” — Melissa Mahle, Anatolia Steppe: Lost in Petra

“He was a secret agent, and still alive thanks to his exact attention to the detail of his profession.”
— Ian Fleming, Casino Royale

The shadow world of spying has captured the imagination of authors for centuries. Now, you can be the one to develop the plot and storyline that grips readers' attention and quickens their pulses.  Join Melissa Mahle, former CIA intelligence officer and author of Anatolia Steppe: Lost in Petra and Camp Secret, and discover how her skills as a real former spy helped her develop characters and stories for her book. Participants will also explore the Museum’s newest exhibition, Exquisitely Evil: 50 Years of Bond Villains and discover Ian Fleming’s influences in creating his enduring 007. Combining writing with hands-on work in disguise, surveillance, and spy gadgetry, this unique writing workshop for young spies reveals the process of creating intriguing characters and spine-tingling stories. After all the missions are completed successfully, who knows… you might just have the beginnings of your very own spy novel.
