University of Montana Writing Alumna Stephanie Land Reflects On Her Netflix Global Hit ‘Maid’

University of Montana

Maid,” written by University of Montana alumna Stephanie Land, has become a worldwide hit. Before Netflix created a series inspired by the memoir, it began as an essay for a UM writing class called “Confessions of the Housekeeper” by Land, an English major at the time. Her essay went viral, spurred a book deal and Land would go on to write “Maid” on a MacBook at a kitchen table in Missoula. The memoir would eventually become a New York Times best-seller, with an acknowledgment page thanking UM faculty, among others, for their mentorship and support.

Land graduated in 2014 from UM with a bachelor’s degree in English. The rest of the story is currently being watched by millions.
