About: Lisa Apple C’09
- Readers of “Disobedience” have been struck by the fact “that I was able to put myself in the shoes of someone who is aging,” says Apple, the 22-year-old winner of Drew’s 2009 Christopher Goin C’78 Memorial Prize in Writing. A philosophy major from Oreland, Pa., Apple plans to keep writing no matter what profession she chooses. That’s an excellent thing in the eyes of her thesis adviser, Assistant Professor of English Tiphanie Yanique: “She ranks at the top of any fiction students I’ve had anywhere.” Apple, now a Teach for America corps member in Washington, D.C., also won Drew’s 2009 Academy of American Poets University and College Poetry Prize.
