Ung Lee, a psychology major from the class of 2002, has won this year's Stony Brook $1,000 Short Fiction Prize , an international literary contest for college undergraduates.
Lee's story, "Accidents," was selected from about 200 entries by a panel of judges who are faculty members of the Department of English at the State University of New York. "Accidents" tells the story of a man trying to cope with the repercussions of an accident.
Lee, who is from Baltimore, Md., is teaching creative writing to high school students this summer in a program at Yale University. He will read his winning story at an event at Stony Brook in the fall.
Kathryn Jude Benson, a member of the class of 2003, earned an honorable mention in the contest.
