“Every week, I presented a new story. Finally something did click, the very thing that's their specialty at The Writers Studio, emotional content. Before, my work was dead. When I brought in my breakthrough story, I felt I was carrying a weird animal in my bag. It was the first story I sold.”
-JENNIFER EGAN, former student at The Writers Studio, National Book Award Finalist for Look At Me (Doubleday 2001)
