Instructors love hearing from students who have publication news to share! We found out about student Kathryn Lilley’s mystery series, The Fat City Mysteries, from her former Workshop in Fiction Writing instructor Lyn Stimer, who called Kathryn a wonderful and dedicated student. Kathryn also has compliments for her former instructor. “My course with Lyn really helped push me down the road toward becoming a professional writer. She offered constant guidance, along with positive feedback and constructive criticism, and was always very supportive of my work. Now I have a mystery series with Penguin Group—I really appreciate my experience at UCLA Extension, and Lyn’s class in particular.”
We all know it’s very difficult to land a book deal with a major publisher, and Kathryn deserves a huge congratulations! We look forward to reading the series.
