Thais majored in Literature at American University. She tells us about her NSCS experience.

“In 2007, I received a National Society of Collegiate Scholars Merit Award, which enabled me to continue my undergraduate education and pursue more educational writing opportunities during the summer. During the summer of 2007, for example, I was able to take additional screenwriting and creative nonfiction courses.”

Brown Paper Publishing released Thais’s first novel, Our Machinery (2008), and first short story collection, The Subconscious Mutiny and Other Stories (2009).  Definitely put these on you to-read list!
