English Professor Lisa C. Taylor was invited to be a visiting writer and speaker at Norwalk Community College in November. The college used her short story collection in their writing classes this semester. Professor Taylor also received an AAUP Development Award for her project “Tenor and Turbulence in Hybrid Writing Forms and Diverse Voices.” This project includes a launch for her new book of short stories and co-teaching a master class with another writer in Ireland in July.
Taylor’s new work will be published in the Tahoma Literary Review in March 2018.
