Hailing from Glen Ellyn in the NW suburbs of Chicago, Beth earned her BA in Psychology at the University of Iowa. When she graduated, she stayed in Iowa for several years. This turned out to be a very bad idea, and she returned to Chicago in 1999. She will never live somewhere with more grass than concrete again. |
Beth is an MFA candidate in the Fiction Writing program at Columbia College and works full time for the Man in various McJob capacities.
She is a contributing reviewer for Time Out Chicago, New City, Bookslut.com and UR Chicago; her writing has appeared in The Banana King, The South Loop Review and Fictionary. She is the What's Going On? Editor for Columbia's Reservoir Magazine. If you see her, you can hug her.
