Recent student Bill Ratner’s debut poetry collection, To Decorate a Casket, will be published in May, 2021.

Of his experience in the Writers’ Program, Bill says, “The knowledge I gained in my UCLA Extension courses from these two master poets, Kim Dower and Suzanne Lummis, propelled me into the poetry world in a way I could never have imagined. The poems I worked on in their Extension classes comprise a good portion of my newly published work.”

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