A short story by graduate student Peggy Newland of Kingston, N.H., will appear in the spring issue of Daedalus., the prestigious journal of the American Academy Arts and Science. The journal is published by MIT Press and distributed internationally.

A student and graduate assistant in the university’s M.F.A. program, Newland has had considerable success with earlier publications as well. Her stories have appeared in Chelsea, Northern New England Review, and the Mississippi Review. Her nonfiction book, “The Adventure of Two Lifetimes,” a memoir, was published in 2001; the rights to it have been optioned for a film.

Wide interest in her writing has led to appearances on “The Today Show” and New Hampshire Public Radio. Newland also has received literary fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the New Hampshire Council on the Arts.

With bachelor’s and master’s degrees in social work, Newland works as a psychotherapist for Bedford Counseling Associates, specializing in counseling adolescents and children with depression and anxiety disorders.
