Stories on Stage Davis will present writing by current graduate students in the UC Davis Creative Writing Master’s Program at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, May 10, at the Pence Gallery, 212 D St. The suggested donation is $5.

The stories featured are the winners of the first-ever Stories on Stage Davis/UC Davis Creative Writing Program Student Fiction Contest. First place went to second-year master’s student Ben Hinshaw for his story, “Fear the Greeks.”

Hinshaw grew up on the island of Guernsey and later lived for several years in London. He is currently at work on a collection of stories and a novel. “Fear the Greeks” will be read by Rob Salas, artistic director of the Davis Shakespeare Ensemble.

Second place went to Ishelle Payer, also a second-year student, for her story “Misgivings.” Payer, a California native, received her bachelor’s in English at UCD and is completing a collection of very short stories for her master’s thesis.

“Misgivings” will be read by Victoria Goldblatt, an area actor and former casting director for Stories on Stage Sacramento.

The contest was open to any current graduate student in the UCD Creative Writing Program. The judges were local writers and program alumnae Elise Winn Pollard and Naomi J. Williams.

Stories on Stage Davis pairs short fiction with regional actors who read it aloud to a live audience. They accept submissions of short stories 3,000 to 5,000 words in length and written or video résumés from actors interested in reading at their events.
