Graduate students in both programs are invited to attend a Career Panel for English Students next Tuesday, May 15th, which will feature three DePaul English professors discussing their various career paths and responding to students’ questions.

Gioia Diliberto is a Chicago based writer and the author of five books – two historical novels and three biographies.

Ms. Diliberto specializes in writing about women’s lives. She has been a contributor to many publications, from The New York Times and The Chicago Tribune, to Smithsonian and Vanity Fair, and she has been a judge for prominent literary contests, including The National Book Award. Her work has been translated into several languages, and The Collection, her novel set in Coco Chanel’s 1919 atelier, has been optioned for a movie.

Chris Green is the author of two books of poetry: Epiphany School and The Sky Over Walgreens. His poetry has appeared in such journals as Poetry, Verse, Court Green, North American Review, and RATTLE. He edited the anthology, A Writers’ Congress: Chicago Poets on Barack Obama’s Inauguration and is co-editor of Brute Neighbors: Urban Nature Poetry, Prose & Photography. He teaches in the English Department at DePaul University.

Kathleen Rooney is a founding editor of Rose Metal Press and the author, most recently, of the essay collection For You, For You I Am Trilling These Songs (Counterpoint, 2010) and the forthcoming novel in poems, Robinson Alone (Gold Wake Press, 2012).
