Emma Duffy-Comparone

We’re excited to announce that Emma Duffy-Comparone (Fiction 2012), who is currently on a fellowship at Yaddo, has won a second Pushcart Prize! The prize is for her story “The Devil’s Triangle,” which was originally published in the New England Review, and will appear in The Pushcart Prize XLI: Best of the Small Presses in November 2016. And, if that weren’t enough, Emma was recently hired as an assistant professor of creative writing at Merrimack College.

Way to go, Emma!  Congratulations!

Emma Duffy-Comparone’s fiction has appeared or is forthcoming in Ploughshares, New England Review, One Story, AGNI, and elsewhere.  A recipient of two Pushcart Prizes (XXXIX and XLI), she has also received awards from the Bread Loaf and Sewanee Writers’ Conferences, the St. Botolph Club Foundation, the MacDowell Colony, the Yaddo Corporation, and the Elizabeth George Foundation.  She will join Merrimack College in the fall as an assistant professor of creative writing.

Just enjoyed Emma’s satirical narrator in her short story “Plagiarism” in the Nov. issue of The Sun. I can identify with the ethical dilemma, especially in light of a more corporatized boarding school context.
