Congratulations are in order to former student Bev Magennis, whose novel, Alibi Creek—about a New Mexico family reunion that leads to drastic transformations of beliefs, identities, and relationships–will be published by Torrey House Press in March 2016. “I began writing late in life,” says Bev, who in 2010 enrolled in Revising Your First Draft Novel with Ian Randall Wilson, “and Ian’s class provided the first and finest education I’ve yet received. He stressed the basics, set the standards, and demanded the quality I strived to achieve then and since.”

If you have a success story, we want to hear about it! Write to writers@uclaextension.edu.
