Vroman's Ed Teacher Makes Good
One of the best, most innovative things we do here at Vroman's is our Vroman's Ed series of craft classes and writing workshops. Several times a year, we put together a schedule of classes on diverse subjects like memoir writing, playwriting, bookbinding, writing for kids, and the basics of crochet. The classes are taught by skilled, experienced professionals, including writers like Mona Simpson, Mary Otis, Kerry Madden, and Amy Goldman Koss. Our workshops have brought people together to learn craft, and even produced a few published authors, including Liza Palmer. Today brings the happy news that one of our past teachers, Edan Lepucki, has taken second place in the prestigious Story Quarterly 2007 Fiction Contest. Her story "Animals" is available to read online. Congratulations, Edan!
