STORY:

Take a Bow – by Barbara Jean Savoie

A young woman with aspirations to be a great pianist is forced to confront her deepest fears – ones that, after a ride on the Lift, become more real than she had ever imagined.

About the Writer

Barbara Jean Savoie is a semi-recent graduate of Emory University. After graduation, not knowing what she wanted to do with her life, she spent a magical six months interning at Walt Disney World. Now, after three years experience writing copy at your grandmother’s favorite department store, she’s excited for her first foray into fiction writing.An avid listener of podcasts, writing for The Lift has been an amazing opportunity. She hopes to one day fill out a biography more fully with published works. Until then, she can be found screaming into the void about podcasts on twitter and sharing amateur attempts at photography on instagram.Twitter | Instagram | Facebook
