Marie Hulme, instructor of English, has been invited to attend a master class in fiction at the Tucson Book Festival March 15-17 at the University of Arizona. Her fiction submission was selected from more than 500 entries to make her one of 30 semi-finalists who will participate in the workshop.
Earlier this year, Hulme’s short story, “Special Romantics,” was published in the Birmingham Arts Journal after winning third prize in the national story category of the Hackney Literary Awards. She has also been invited to read a piece of her nonfiction writing, “The Bookseller” at the San Francisco public library later this year as part of the PEN Women literary awards program. She is currently at work on her first novel set in Belfast during the time of “The Troubles,” as well as a non-fiction collection.
