Longtime Creative Writing Instructor Jessica Barksdale Inclan recently had a book of poetry published. She told us, “Before I wrote short stories or novels, I wrote poems, and I continued to do so all through the writing of longer works. When We Almost Drowned is a collection of poems written over a couple of decades.”

Of her time teaching for the Writers’ Program, Jessica says, “I am going to use the decades word again. I’ve been teaching for UCLA Extension for almost twenty years. I’ve had so many memorable teaching experiences, and I’ve remained in contact with students over the years. The best part is when students take their stories and make their dreams come true, publishing their work.”

Congratulations, Jessica! If you have a success story, we want to hear about it! Click here.
