LivingWritersPosterFall2013Thresholds and Breaking Points

The writers in this series will present across multiple genres, to include poetry, fiction, criticism, and various hybrid genres. Each will explore ways that language tests thresholds of culture, race, nation, sex, gender, and desire through the creative imagination. Central to each will be how these thresholds are performed, tested, broken, clarified and complicated in their works.

Lucy Corin is the author of the short story collection The Entire Predicament (Tin House Books) and the novel Everyday Psychokillers: A History for Girls (FC2). The collection One Hundred Apocalypses and Other Apocalypses was just released from McSweeney’s Books. Stories have appeared in American Short Fiction, Conjunctions, Ploughshares, Tin House Magazine, New Stories From the South: The Year’s Best and other places. She’s been a fellow at Breadloaf and Sewanee, and spent last year at the American Academy in Rome as the 2012 John Guare Fellow in Literature. She now directs the Creative Writing Program at the University of California, Davis.
