The Centre for Fiction hosts a great series called Craftwork (episodes can be found on You Tube). Some of the presenting authors are Jennifer Egan, Myla Goldberg, Alan Cheuse, Christine Schutt, and Peter Straub.

Doug Glover, author of “Savage Love” and “Elle,” among other books, and editor of Numéro Cinq, and a man I greatly admire, talks brilliantly about the structure of novels here:
