New York’s young literary set suffered a tragic loss this weekend: Recent Yale alumna Marina Keegan, a former New Yorker intern who was due to move to Williamsburg and start working at the magazine as an editorial assistant on June 11, was killed in a car accident in Cape Cod late Saturday night. Keegan, who was 22, co-wrote The Independents, a folk musical slated for the New York Fringe Festival in August. Her boyfriend is in stable condition at the hospital. The Yale Daily News is now accepting “funny stories, lasting impressions, lessons from a woman gone so young” for publication. [New York Daily News]
