Feb 26, 2009  

Fiction writer-in-residence Margot Singer will give a public reading of her work at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 5, in Galbreath Chapel. A reception and book signing will follow.

Singer is the author of "The Pale of Settlement," winner of the Flannery O'Connor Award for Short Fiction, the Glasgow Prize for Emerging Writers and the Reform Judaism Prize for Jewish Fiction. Her short stories and essays have appeared in magazines such as Agni, Prairie Schooner, Shenandoah, The North American Review and The Sun.

She has received a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship, the Carter Prize for the Essay, and an honorable mention from the judges of the PEN/Hemingway Award. She is currently an assistant professor of English at Denison University in Granville, Ohio.

While on campus next week, Singer will visit undergraduate fiction classes, hold a workshop for graduate students and meet with graduate students for individual discussions. 

The residency is sponsored by the Program in Creative Writing and Department of English, with support from the College of Arts and Sciences.
