Former student Michele Wolfe has had multiple successes since taking her first class in the Writers’ Program. Her debut novel, The Three Graces, was published in 2014 and she is almost finished with her second novel, Atoms of Memory. In the meantime, she’s found other opportunities to put her work out there. She wrote a memoir piece, “First Date Park Bench,” for the LA Affairs section of the LA Times, and although she never thought she’d write short stories, two of her pieces of short fiction have also been published. The most recent, “72 Hours,” can be found in the online magazine Five on the Fifth.
Of her experiences in the Writers’ Program, Michele says, “I wanted to write because I had an interesting idea for a novel, but didn’t know where to begin. UCLA Extension classes gave the jump-start I needed. Novel Writing I challenged me to write every day, which helped me find my voice. Introduction to Fiction dared me to be open to constructive feedback from the instructor and other writers.”
