Local Girls "Began at Bennington"

Caroline Zancan MFAW '14, author of Local Girls, links her debut novel to her time at Bennington in an interview with Melville House.

As Zancan said in the interview, "I was writing it as a short story for an MFA deadline [at Bennington]...but once it grew and I had a structure was a tornado." She went on to praise the Bennington MFAW program, "The motto of Bennington's program is 'Read 100 Books, Write one' and I think that's exactly right."
