Success: Siel Ju’s Novel-in-Stories CAKE TIME to be Published

ju-siel_-cake-time-coverFormer Writers’ Program student Siel Ju’s novel-in-stories Cake Time will be published this April by Red Hen Press!  Siel describes her published work:  “Cake Time tells the story of a smart girl who makes risky mistakes about men and sex in her scattershot search for love in Los Angeles. It’s a contemporary coming of age story about the conflict between fear of intimacy and desire for connection.”  Of her experience with the Writers’ Program, Siel says, “The incisive feedback I received in Paul Mandelbaum‘s short fiction class challenged me to rethink and rework my stories in new creative directions. Paul’s encouragement gave me the push I needed to send Cake Time out into the world.”

Congratulations to Siel Ju!  Check out her website at sielju.com!
