successful mfa novels? [Jun. 22nd, 2008|07:28 pm]
English Major Central
Hey kids,

I'm looking for names of successful novels that were written for thesis for mfa programs. Any in mind?

Thanks :)

I'm not 100% sure if it was her thesis, but Alice Sebold started writing her memoir, Lucky, while in school. It started as a 14 page assignment and grew. Then while attending grad school at University of California--Irvine she started writing The Lovely Bones. As part of her dedication in the book, she thanked the people that helped her workshop the book at UCI.

I am pretty sure Ellen Wittlinger's young adult novel Hard Love came out of her work at University of Iowa, but I could be mistaken.
