2010-11 Writer-in-residence: Kyle Beachy

The Roosevelt MFA program is proud to announce its first writer-in-residence, novelist Kyle Beachy. Kyle will be teaching the new Fiction III/IV course on Monday nights.

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.
