The Roosevelt MFA program is proud to have this year a new tenure tracked position, with novelist Kyle Beachy, who was the writer-in-residence last year. Kyle will be teaching the the introductory Fiction I course on Monday nights for the fall 2011 semester.
Kyle Beachy's debut novel, The Slide, was published in 2009 by The Dial Press. Hailed as “Suspenseful, erotic, and terribly sad,” it is a ghost story, a love story, and a story of the American Midwest (set in St. Louis). He received his M.F.A. from The School of The Art Institute of Chicago. He has taught writing and literature at The School of the Art Institute, the Graham School at The University of Chicago, and the University of Iowa Summer Writing Festival.
