On March 3, 2016, The Other Stories team took a road trip all the way from New York City to… well, wherever Bard College is (we used a GPS, we’re not sure about the exact location, but we know it’s gorgeous there).
The following students read their incredible stories, and host Ilana Masad asked them a few questions:
Johanna Costigan is a junior Written Arts and Chinese major from Dobbs Ferry, New York. She writes fiction and poetry and works as an ESL tutor at Bard College.
Cleo Egnal is from Los Angeles, California. She is a junior Written Arts major, and focuses on writing historical fiction novels, although she also write short stories, poems, and music. This year she began a series of student-run fiction readings that take place in the Written Arts building, Shafer House, during which all Bard College students, Written Arts majors or not, are welcome to come read their works to their peers.
Anna Sones was born and raised in Santa Fe, New Mexico. She is currently a sophomore at Bard College where she studies Written Arts. She writes in any genre in which the inspiration strikes, but mostly fiction. Her other interests include sustainability and playing the clarinet.
(Note: Ms. Egnal only reads an excerpt of her full story during her reading due to time constraints, but the story appears in its entirety on our blog!).
