Recent graduate Lisa Horiuchi was featured in the Ploughshares Solos series and her work also appears in Conjunctions 68: Inside Out: Architectures of Experience. She is also currently working on a novel.

Of her time in the Writers’ Program, Lisa says, “This program is a powerhouse. I recommend it all the time to anyone looking to dip a toe (or leg, or more!) in the artistic waters. Thanks to the support and guidance of the instructors at the Writers’ Program, I was motivated to switch careers and pursue my MFA at UC Irvine. UCLA Extension provided a solid foundation for my application material and equipped me with the language of craft needed to hit the ground running… I am forever grateful to Antoine Wilson, Lisa Cron, Charles Wyatt, David Corbett, Amy Friedman, and the late Les Plesko for my ‘MFA before the MFA.’”
