Writing Workshops Alum Published by Penguin Random House Canada

Chang School Writing Workshops alumnus, Sarah Meehan Sirk, is receiving high praise for her collection of short stories, The Dead Husband Project. Published by Penguin Random House Canada, the book hit shelves last week and was reviewed very positively in The Toronto Star over the weekend for hitting “the short story sweet spot.”

Sirk credits her Writing Workshops courses and instructor Beth Kaplan, saying, “I enrolled in Beth Kaplan’s True to Life class at The Chang School and found what I was after and more: the honest feedback, the direction, the deadlines, a writing group, and the help I needed to start becoming a much better writer. I still think of Beth’s advice often. She assured me that writers blossom in their own time, at the right time for them.”

Congratulations on your writing success, Sarah Meehan Sirk!
