Jodi Fodor, who has taken several Writers’ Program classes over the years, published her first book this summer, The SAT Word Slam: Rhyme Your Way to a Better Vocabulary and Higher SAT and ACT Scores (Adams Media). As a teacher, tutor, and writer, Jodi realized that there weren’t any vocabulary books on the market that were funny or that used mnemonic hooks, so she started writing the rhymes that would become The SAT Word Slam.
“I’ve enjoyed all the writing classes I’ve taken through UCLA Extension. I enrolled in the classes not only to learn more about the craft but to meet people and connect with other writers. And sure enough, one of those connections led to my finding an agent who found me a book deal. Thank you UCLA Extension!”
