Long odds and optimism
Dudley earned his bachelor's degree from Johns Hopkins' Writing Seminars. He is an associate editor for Cornell Alumni Magazine (CAM) in Ithaca, New York, where he lives with his wife, Sondra; 2-year-old daughter Nora; and Foghat, the family dog. He says he enjoys the opportunity CAM offers to write about a wide variety of subjects. "I tend to gravitate toward topics in the sciences when writing for alumni magazines," he says. "It's a venue where you can write about fairly substantive science issues for a general audience." Dudley's work has appeared in Baltimore Magazine, Baltimore's City Paper, and AARP The Magazine.
Becker, who attended the Rhode Island School of Design, says that in her work, she uses whatever is around. "I don't like to rely on a kit of parts," she says. "I like the idea of collage as an honorable economy — it's about using stuff I picked up here and there." Her work has also appeared in The New Yorker, The Atlantic Monthly, and The New York Times Magazine. — MB
