Interview with Lucy Corin


Lucy Corin holds a BA from Duke University and an MFA from Brown. She’s an assistant professor in the English Department at University of California, Davis.

Her short stories have appeared in numerous literary journals: An early piece was selected for an Iowa Review special issue of innovative narrative which was then produced as The Iowa Anthology of Innovative Narrative. Another early story was included in DoubleTake/Norton’s anthology Fiction: 25 and Under, introduced by Dr. Robert Coles.

Her work has appeared twice in Algonquin’s New Stories from the South, the Year’s Best anthology series (1997 and the forthcoming 2003 edition), twice in Ploughshares, and in a number of other literary journals including The Southern Review, Shenandoah, Mid-American Review, and The North American Review. Serpent’s Tail included two stories in anthologies edited by Amy Prior (Retro Retro and the forthcoming Strictly Casual: Women on Love). Corin was first published by FC2 in the 1996 New Women’s Fiction Anthology, Chick-Lit 2 (No Chick Vics).
