Day teaches creative writing capstone course
MFA Alumna Lori Rader Day is back at Roosevelt University for the fall, teaching ENG 395, a sort of senior capstone creative writing class for students doing the creative writing emphasis. ENG 395 is a small group that meets by arrangement. As a workshop, the course gives senior undergrads an invaluable opportunity to develop their work.
Day is working on getting the students writing--on getting them producing and revising. Most of the students write fiction, although one student is very interested in memoir, so they are working on all the skills needed for both.
Lori teaches in addition to directing the Office of Communications at Northwestern University.
