Your manuscript (no longer than 10 pages) must be sent to David Corbett by April 28th at midnight.

Advice so simple it can’t possibly be right: just tell the story. In fact, the vast majority of writing problems—what’s essential and what isn’t, how to balance inner life against action and dialogue, how to create variety and contrast among the characters, how to use setting to enhance the narrative—can be solved by referring to the context of the story. David Corbett, author of The Art of Character, leads students in a one-day workshop, reviewing 10-page manuscript submissions from each student in detail to reveal how story guides the revision process.

David Corbett is the award-winning author of The Art of Character and five novels, including The Mercy of the Night and Blood of Paradise.
