2013-2014 Writers’ Program Scholarship recipient Laura Picklesimer has been accepted to the MFA Program in Creative Writing at California State University, Long Beach, where she will begin her studies this fall. During her program, she will focus on fiction and, in particular, finishing her first novel Kill for Love.

Laura says her Writers’ Program instructors helped her refine and push forward in her work. “The UCLA Extension Writers’ Program is a great resource for writers who want to sharpen their craft in a supportive environment. Mark Sarvas provided excellent guidance that allowed me to pinpoint weaknesses within the story, while also looking at the novel as a whole. Stephen Cooper also is a stellar instructor who helped give me the confidence to embark on my first novel.”

Congratulations, Laura!
