Grace Tiffany Acquires Three Minutes of Fiction Fame (But Only Three)
Grace Tiffany traveled to Knox College in Illinois last week, where she read from her novel-in-progress about the Gunpowder Plot, Gunpowder Percy, and conducted (as outside reader) an honors thesis defense. At the Medieval Congress the following weekend, she delivered a paper entitled "Shakespeare's Miracle Plays" as one of a panel devoted to the discussion of Shakespeare's views on miracles. Fellow panelists were Hope College's John Cox and the Blackfriars Theatre's Bob Jones; the organizer was Taylor University's Joe Ricke; and the respondent was U. of Chicago's David Bevington. Grace also received word last week that her very-short story, "Subjectivity" (about the MLA convention), had been posted on NPR 's website (topic page: fiction) in connection with its three-minute fiction contest.
