Student Ron Darian, who earned his Certificate in Creative Writing, had a string of recent publications including work in Fiction International, Dos Passos Review, Argestes, The MacGuffin, Paddlefish, and Lullwater Review. His forthcoming stories include “On the List of Historic Places” in Inkwell and”Village Zaghoor” in Verdad.
Ron has taken a variety of fiction, short story and novel writing courses and says, “I’m fortunate to have had terrific teachers at the UCLA Extension Writers’ Program including Lou Mathews, Judith Prager, Harry Youtt, Stephen Cooper, Maureen Connell, and Stephanie Waxman. In my opinion, while every teacher is different, the great ones always seem to have one thing in common: an infectious passion for good writing.”
Keep the publications coming, Ron! Congratulations and we look forward to reading your work.
