Student Karin Zirk was awarded a grant for unpublished novels through the Elizabeth George Foundation. Karin has been using the grant to take Writers’ Program online courses to finish her novel, Falling from the Moon.
Karin says, “The grant provided time to write and funding for classes such as Novel V, where I studied under the incredible Caroline Leavitt. Not only is she a cheerleader extraordinaire, but her ability to share tools that helped me find the holes in my novel and fill them with the missing pieces of the story was incredible,” Karin says. “In addition to the Novel V class, I had the privilege of taking Katharine Sand’s Riveting Writing course, which has given me the tools I need to pitch this book to an agent.”
We look forward to reading the finished manuscript, Karin! Congratulations.
