Online creative writing student Tamar Rothenberg saved the essay “One More Trashy Tale” written in instructor Rochelle Shapiro’s Personal Essay course because “I remembered that Rochelle and my classmates had said it was their favorite, but it was never published.” A year later, Tamar took one line from that essay, and incorporated into a new essay entitled “The Ultimate Reorganization” which was recently published on the webzine Aish.com. Read the whole essay here.

Tamar credits Rochelle’s encouragement for keeping “One More Trashy Tale” in her computer file drawer.

Everyone, open your “file” drawer and start stuffing!
