Catherine Emerson Cottles, a student in Lisa Cron‘s 2011-2012 Master Class in Novel Writing, just published her short story “Choupique” in the latest edition of Arkansas Review: A Journal of Delta Studies.
“Lisa is a powerful and supportive instructor. In her class I gained a keen understanding of narrative structure and the principles of engaging the reader in story. Instead of simply ‘killing my darlings’–the subplots I loved but needed to cut from my novel–I was able to restructure and create a publishable short story from them. I am indebted to Lisa for my story, to the other members of the class, and to the weekly Master Class lectures.”
