John Mitchell Morris, who studied novel writing with Reyna Grande and Deborah Reed, will be heading to New York this fall to begin the MFA Program in Writing at Sarah Lawrence College. A former actor and currently a civil litigator in Los Angeles, John is at work on his first novel, Flight From Mount Holyoke Avenue.
“The UCLA Extension Writers’ Program transformed my writing life and equipped me with the skill and confidence to pursue an MFA,” John says. “Deborah and Reyna guided me through improving my weaknesses and maximizing my strengths as a writer. I am forever grateful to them and the Program.”
