Jacqueline Firkins, MFA 2019

How did your time in the Creative Writing Program influence your work?

I formed a community, improved my skills, and shifted from writing for myself toward writing for publication.

What’s your latest published/performed work?

Hearts, Strings, and Other Breakable Things. YA novel. HMHTeen. December 2019

Are you connected to any creative writing communities you’d like to mention (UBC alums, film and theatre communities, etc)?

I teach full time in the theatre and film department. I also freelance in the industry as a designer. Member of CWILLBC and SCBWI.

Is there anything else about your writing career you’d like to share?

My sophomore novel, How Not to Fall in Love is currently scheduled for release in fall 2021, also with HMHTeen.
