Suzanne Rivecca's first collection of short stories, "Death is Not an Option," is forthcoming from W.W. Norton in 2010. Stories from this collection have appeared in Best New American Voices 2008 and 2009 and have won the Pushcart Prize and fellowships from MacDowell Colony and Djerassi Resident Artists Program. A former Wallace Stegner fellow at Stanford, she is currently working on a novel about Walt Whitman. She alternates writing fiction with grant-writing at Homeless Youth Alliance, a human services agency for homeless youth in San Francisco.
The Storytelling Project is supported by the Stanford Institute for Creativity and the Arts, the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education, Stanford Introductory Studies, Stanford Continuing Studies, and the Program in Writing and Rhetoric.
