Online certificate student Roberta King recently published her personal essay, “The Orders” in Brain, Child Magazine online. Roberta wrote the piece in Victoria Zackheim’s Writing and Publishing the Personal Essay: Advanced Workshop (Online). Victoria calls the piece “A poignant, honest, and very moving account of the one decision no parent should ever have to make.”
Roberta credits the Writers’ Program with leading her down the road to publication. “My decision to pursue a certificate in creative nonfiction has kept me writing and moving forward. In the advanced class, I worked on just a couple of pieces during the quarter and with the guidance of the amazing Victoria Zackheim, a piece I sent to Brain, Child was published. Her help with the pitch letter as well as the essay were integral to my success.”
