Our final reader for this edition of The Frunchroom is filling the “token North Sider” role, but, as you’ll see and hear, her roots are on the South Side.
Mare Swallow is the Founder of the Chicago Writers Conference and author of 21 Ways to Engage Your Audience. Her work has recently appeared in Story Club magazine. By day, she is a professional speaker and MFA student. She writes creative non fiction, and tells her stories on the Live Lit Circuit, at events such as That’s All She Wrote, FlickLit, Story Lab, Story Club, Is This A Thing? and Tuesday Funk. She has been named to New City’s Lit 50 list twice.
Born at South Shore hospital and originally from the East Side, she defected to the North Side 17 years ago and now lives in Andersonville. She is a total gin Snob and plays ukulele, very badly. Mare will read a personal essay about the crazy work ethic she says she grew up with.
See you tomorrow at The Frunchroom! 730pm at Beverly Woods (11532 S Western Ave.).
