Writers’ Program student Chris Le Gras has founded and edited a new literary journal, Six Three Whiskey, which includes stories from fellow student Rob Roman and instructor Lou Mathews. The first issue also includes William Faulkner’s first published story, “Landing in Luck.”

Says Chris, “Six Three Whiskey exists in large part because of the people and connections at the UCLA Extension Writers’ Program. When I returned to L.A. after a decade in the Bay Area, two classes at the Writers’ Program provided not just creative fodder but access to L.A.’s best writers and a community that’s second to none. Without the assistance of dedicated, passionate instructors like Lou Mathews, it’s likely that one of the most exciting new lit journals would have remained a dream.”

Congratulations, Chris!
