Special December Meeting | Ellis Avery & Hillary Jordan Recap

Hillary Jordan, CU MFA, is the bestselling author of the Bellwether Prize-winning novel, Mudbound.   She and Professor Ellis Avery, of Columbia’s Writing Program, addressed the Fiction Foundry in December of 2013. 


She joined the workshop session and critiqued each of the submissions and then stayed to give us a talk based on Nigel Watts’ “Eight Points of Plot.” She was fantastic! Ellis also stayed to sign copies of her novels, The Teahouse Fire, and The Last Nude.


Hillary discussed the craft of writing and the trials and tribulations of getting published.


Thanks, Hillary and Ellis.
