Currently, Corbett is pursuing her MFA from her alma mater while collaborating with high profile associates on various creative projects in the Orange County and L.A. areas.

After transferring into Chapman University during the fall 2013 semester to pursue a BFA in Creative Writing, Corbett's watercolor painting "Stained Glass" was featured as the cover of Calliope: Art and Literary Magazine's Fall 2013 Edition. Additionally, from January through the end of March 2014, eleven original watercolors went on display in Leatherby Libraries in a personal art exhibit titled, "Palette of Perception." In July 2014, Corbett's article Sanctuary of Words appeared in Chapman Magazine's special Summer 2014 edition.

Corbett has also published twelve books of poetry, "The Id: The Art of Being Human" in 2009, "The Life Ever After" and "The Writing on the Wall" in 2010; "Sound Brilliance," "The Life Limitless," and "Boundless" were published in 2011, and most recently, "The Drug List" in 2014 alongside "Wisdom 23," her first memoir. In December 2015, Corbett released four books in different genres on the same day. One poetry book, "While We're Young," a memoir following-up on the previous, "24; Wiser Fools." Additionally, Corbett published a short story collection in "Forest For a Tree," and lastly, her novel "The Lovers Tree" made its way to publication as well. Between all eight poetry books, she has over seven hundred and fifty poems. Considering she was illiterate until ten and is a self-taught reader who struggled with dyslexia, she's faired pretty well linguistically.

A. Leigh Corbett is also a member of Sigma Tau Delta International English Honors Society in the Alpha Zeta Iota chapter. Additionally, Corbett is a Presidential Status member in The National Society of Leadership and Success, also known as Sigma Alpha Pi. She also served as Vice President of the Chapman Equestrian Team from fall 2013 - spring 2015.
