David Corbett on ‘The Character of Plot’ September 24

Join us September 24 for the always-compelling David Corbett, award-winning author of six novels, as well as the The Art of Character, which Elizabeth Brundage calls “a writer’s bible.”

You’re also welcome to join us for our informal and interactive Opening Act, where we’ll read a page of dialogue and then share feedback on how to make it snappier.
