Mary Stone Dockery teaches and writes in Lawrence, KS

Mary Stone Dockery (BA-Literature, 2009) reports that good things are happening in Lawrence, KS. Mary, a teaching assistant and MFA student at KU, has had her creative work published with regularity.

Last year, Mary's piece "Somewhere Inside" (creative nonfiction) appeared in Touchstone. Her poem "Giving" appeared in FuturCycle poetry, both online and in print. Her poems "After Getting the Mole Removed" and "The Woman Doing Cartwheels in the Living Room" will appear in the Pennsylvania Literary Journal in January 2011. Mary has also served as a reader for the inaugural issue of the Blue Island Review, a journal published out of Lawrence, KS that features poets from the greater Kansas City area; Mary has had her work published in BIR as well. Currently, Mary is serving as a reader for the new literary journal for the creative writing program at KU - Beecher's - scheduled to come out in 2011.

Mary reports that teaching is going well and that her "students strive toward creative and insightful projects, always surprising [her] with how much they know."
