I’m Duffer. Thanks for reading. Like parenting and manhood, my career is a trial-and-error exercise. My work has appeared in MAKE Magazine, Chicago Tribune, Monkeybicycle, Time Out Chicago, Annalemma, Chicago Public Radio, Knee-Jerk Magazine, Word Riot, New City, Flashquake, Chicago Artists Resource, Pindledyboz, The 2nd Hand, and other coffee-table favorites like Canadian Builders Quarterly. In addition to teaching writing at Columbia College Chicago, I’m the Chicago literary correspondent for The Examiner and co-host the monthly reading series, RUI: Reading Under the Influence.
