Christina Kloess Wins Audience Favorite at Chicago Literary Guild Showcase!

The final credits of the school year approach—the narrative reaches its climactic end—and in the year’s third act, we are reminded that there is nothing more satisfying than a story of success.

Roosevelt MFAer Christina Kloess was recently nominated to represent our school in the Chicago Literary Guild’s Teaching Artist/Multi-University Student Showcase, and was chosen crowd favorite after her reading! A city-wide event, this annual reading was created to showcase great writers in local writing programs, and develop relationships between writers and their communities.

Christina says the best part about the experience was getting to hear the sort of work other writers in other programs are producing, and feeling the sense of community between local programs.

While the crowd selection was more official than using a clap-o-meter, it would have been off the charts after her reading!

Join me in congratulating Christina on all of her success!
