Creative writing student Dana Mazur has volunteered for our yearly Writers Faire and has also taken a variety of fiction writing courses including Novel Writing V, Writing Good Sex, and True and Vivid Writing. So it was great news to hear that an excerpt of her novel, “Black Shaman,” will be published in McSweeney’s Issue #26. Dana credits novel writing instructor Les Plesko’s encouragement and says, “I worked on the novel in Les’s class and mentioned the workshop in my bio for McSweeney’s.” Congratulations Dana!
