From Thesis to Published Novel

Laura Scudder Conference Room, Roosevelt Hall 121

 

Learn about writing and publishing from Lynnette Beers, MFA Creative Writing Alumna, and how she turned her MFA thesis project into a published novel.

 

Lynnette Beers, MFA Creative Writing Alumna and Published Author

Lynnette has been telling stories ever since she was a child, but it was not until adulthood that she realized she wanted to pursue a career in writing and literature. After earning degrees in English and film studies, she went on to get an MA in literature and an MFA in fiction writing at Chapman University. She has been a professor of creative writing and British literature for several years.

 

Just Beyond the Shining River (Regal Crest, 2017) was her MFA thesis and is the product of extensive research and time spent in England. Three study abroad trips gave her the opportunity to live as a Londoner and to get an ear for British dialect and nuances. As a longstanding member of the International Virginia Woolf Society, she has presented papers at conferences in the US and the UK. Her stories and essays have appeared in a number of publications.
