Wp’ certificate student Margaret Chen’s story “The Zhangs and The Zumans” placed in the Top 25 of the September 2011 Glimmer Train Fiction Open. “Zumans” was also nominated for the 2011 James Kirkwood Literary Prize.
“I workshopped this story in two Advanced Short Story classes last year — Lisa Cron’s Spring class and David Borofka’s Fall class. Ironically, this story had been rejected by Glimmer Train in 1999. This story, and many others, wouldn’t have gotten as far as they did without the generous help I received from David, Lisa, and my other fantastic Writers’ Program instructors.”
