Online certificate student Deepa Swamy has won third prize in the Deccan Herald Short Story Competition ’13, for her story “Spices to Go.” The Herald, a leading daily newspaper in Bangalore, India, says that Deepa’s story, “captures the local flavours beautifully.”

“Working on my craft with the talented instructors at the UCLA Extension Writers’ Program has been wonderful. Each course has brought me fresh perspectives and given me tools to improve and hone my writing. The online workshop format has been very engaging. And distance—thousands of miles for me—has never been an issue.”

Congratulations, Deepa!
