Trudy Lewis is a novelist, short story writer, and professor of English. She teaches graduate and undergraduate workshops in fiction-writing. As an affiliate of Women's and Gender Studies, Trudy also teaches 2189, a survey of women's literature from 1890 to the present. Her version of that course, "Pink Under the Collar," examines representations of women's intellectual and domestic labor. Trudy is particularly interested in intersections of gender, labor, and class.

Trudy's short story collection The Bones of Garbo, was awarded the Sandstone Prize in Short Fiction (Ohio State University Press). Her fiction has appeared in American Short Fiction, Atlantic Monthly, Best American Short Stories, Cream City Review, Five Points, Meridian, New England Review, Prairie Schooner, Southwest Review, Third Coast, Witness, and others. Trudy's first novel, Private Correspondences, won the William Goyen Prize (TriQuarterly Books/Northwestern University Press) and her short stories have been awarded the Lawrence Foundation and Glenna Luschei Prizes from Prairie Schooner. She was the Viebranz Visiting Professor of Creative Writing at St. Lawrence University in 2006-2007 and has received the Faculty-Alumni and Graduate Mentor Awards from the University of Missouri. Trudy is currently at work on a historical novel about 19th century mill workers in Lowell, Massachusetts.

Trudy will be team-teaching WGST 8040, the graduate seminar Problems and Issues in Feminist Scholarship, with Professor Mary Jo Neitz in Fall 2013. She was the 2012-2013 Scholar's Chair in Women's and Gender Studies' Targeted Teaching Initiative.
