“The literary experience that I gained through [UFV] creative writing courses was instrumental in my signing of a two-book North American deal with HarperTeen (the Young Adult imprint of HarperCollins) and an international deal with Penguin Random House India. Through the poetry and fiction that I wrote, revised and fine-tuned . . . my debut manuscript proposal went to auction with four different publishers, which ultimately allowed me to choose the editor and publishing house that I most meaningfully connected with.” ~ Jasmin Kaur, Published YA author
