STORIES ON STAGE DAVIS this May 13th, at the Pence Gallery, will feature winners of our UC Davis student short story fiction contest. First place is Emily Masuda with her story “A Good Place to Bury Things”, and second-place runner up is Madeline Gobbo with her story “The Conception” . Actor Lisa Halko will be performing “A Good Place to Bury Things”, and actor Kristi Webb will be performing “The Conception”. Emily Masuda is the first undergraduate student to ever win first place in Stories on Stage Davis’s annual fiction contest. Her first-place story, “A Good Place To Bury Things,” is about how a chance encounter with a stranger allows a woman to begin to come to terms with an old grief. Masuda graduated from UC Davis in March 2017, and is the recipient of the Diana Lynn Bogart and Pamela Maus Prizes for fiction. In June, Masuda will attend the Skidmore Summer Writers Institute in New York with a fiction scholarship. Also featured is Madeline Gobbo and her story “The Conception”, which offers the reader a world at once strange and familiar, with cell phones, joggers, lawns — and towering silos in which infertile women are kept safe, or perhaps held hostage. Gobbo is a first-year MA student in the creative writing program at UC Davis. Her stories have appeared in Queen Mob’s Teahouse and Black Candies: Gross and Unlikeable, for which she was nominated for a Pushcart Prize. STORIES ON STAGE DAVIS performances are held at the Pence Gallery in downtown Davis, 212 D Street. $10 donation recommended; $5 minimum. Doors open at 7 p.m., and the reading starts at 7:30 p.m.
