dc.description.abstractThis thesis is a collection of short stories that I have written throughout my time as a graduate student in the University of Missouri-Kansas City Master of Fine Arts program. These pieces were picked because, and I believe that they represent the best of my work completed during my time in the program, they also represent the progression of my writing skills during my time in the program. I picked the order of stories for this collection based on chronology. The first story in the collection is the first piece I wrote for the program and the last piece in the collection is the last piece I wrote for the program. I did this because I believe that there is a clear progression in the quality of my writing and in the content displayed in the pieces. I have titled this collection of short stories FRINGES, because I believe that each story presents characters that live on the fringes of society. Whether that be queer people, people struggling with mental illness and generational trauma, robots, widowers, single mothers, murderers, orphans, or victims of capitalism and old traditions, this short story collection offers a full range of ostracized psyches.
