PhD Alumna's Short Story Selected for Presentation

PhD alumna, Lori Stephens, short story, “Epidural,” is selected by the “Texas Bound” committee for presentation during their program on April 11, 2011. They will use the story as a “closer” for the evening. The story was originally written in a graduate short fiction workshop taught by Dr. Clay Reynolds. The committee has designated it as a “star story,” meaning they will try to obtain the services of a major celebrity actress to read it.

Dr. Stephens teaches English at SMU. Her first novel will be released in the Spring of 2011 and she is scheduled to present a reading on UT Dallas campus on January 27.
