Student Cynthia Stock Published in Pulse: Voices From the Heart of Medicine

Congratulations to Cynthia Stock! She has new work titled "When Worlds Collide" published in Pulse, which you can read here.

Cynthia's work has appeared in Memoryhouse, Shark Reef, The Manifest-Station, and Lunch Ticket Amuse Bouche, as well as several anthologies.

During a forty-three-year Critical Care nursing career, Cynthia pursued creative writing through various institutions and mentors. She enjoys being a seventy-year-old who drinks wine, contemplates the narratives in Joni Mitchell and Prince lyrics, and writes fiction gleaned from fragments of an ordinary life.

Cynthia has taken our Advanced Fiction workshop with Jenny Bhatt, Finding Your Voice in Midlife with Lynne Golodner, and more. Cynthia said, "Classes give me the feeling of belonging to a community with common interests and an appreciation of the art of language. The realization that I was not alone in this crazy passion to write is the greatest takeaway from my classes."

Cynthia's career in nursing, her experiences as a competitive swimmer, wrestling with personal demons, and a love of the written word drive many of her stories. She is in the process of revising two short stories and in the middle of a first draft about aging.


We're rooting for you, Cynthia! Thank you for letting us be part of your writing journey!
