Writers’ Program student Kelly Samuels’ short story, “Rubberbirds,” was performed August 12 by the New Short Fictions Series in North Hollywood and published by Barnes & Noble for e-readers. “Rubberbirds,” Kelly describes, “is about a young woman who kills her boyfriend in self-defense and hits the road with his body in the trunk of his Camaro.”

Kelly is a recent graduate of the Writers’ Program Certificate in Fiction. She says, “Being in the Writers’ Program has given me the skills and confidence to bring my writing out from my notebooks and into the real world. I enjoyed every single class and instructor. I want to especially thank Lynn Hightower for her dedication to Novel Boot Camp. Her feedback and encouragement elevated my scattered chapters to finished first draft.”

Congratulations, Kelly!
