Writers’ Program instructor Lou Mathews recently beat out almost 900 other contestants to win failbetter.com‘s 10th anniversary novella contest. Lou’s work, The Irish Septet, will be serialized on failbetter, a leading web literary publisher, beginning in October. Per failbetter, “‘Septet’ tells the heartrending, poignant, ultimately redemptive story of an L.A. priest whose life is nearly destroyed when he stands up to the Church’s attempts to sweep its pedophilia scandal under the rug…(Mathews is) a master of understated language and rich characterizations.”

Congratulations, Lou!
