The first chapter of Aline Ohanesian’s novel, An Axe in the Forest, was recently a finalist for the Glimmer Train Short Story Award for New Writers. Aline has taken fiction writing courses in our program, as well as our literary agent workshop.

Aline shares: “I worked on this and other chapters in Novel Writing III (Online) with Caroline Leavitt. Caroline was a careful reader whose critique had a major impact on my writing. What’s more, she has continued to stay in touch with me, offering the kind of support that every new writer needs. Thank you for providing a lifeline to writers like me who would otherwise be without instruction and community.”

Congratulations, Aline, and keep us posted on your book!
