All writers benefit from spending time with other writers, and discussing the craft of writing. We had a fun, motivating and informative webinar with our very own Jo-Anne Richards, and associate Michele Rowe.

Michele teaches our screenwriting courses with Richard, and the two of them have just developed a Hero’s Journey course for writers of all persuations.
