The Art of Writing through Reading

Logan Arts Center, Performance Penthouse

The Committee on Creative Writing presents three of its faculty members reading from their work, each representing one of the genres at the core of the program. In addition to teaching fiction at University of Chicago and Columbia College, Megan Stielstra is Director of Story Development for 2nd Story ( and a veteran of the Chicagoland literary scene. Rachel DeWoskin is the author of two novels and a memoir that is currently being adapted into an HBO pilot. She will be reading nonfiction. Leila Wilson, a poet and a graduate of the MAPH, is the former poetry editor of the Chicago Review. Her collection of poetry is forthcoming from Milkweed Editions. Join us for an afternoon of uniquely Chicago writing from our accomplished teachers.
