Friction in Fiction tuition:


RS Deeren is a writer from rural Michigan where he's worked as a line cook, a lumberjack, a landscaper, and a bank teller. His fiction is influenced by these and other odd jobs that sustained him during and after the recession. A fellow in the PhD program at UW–Milwaukee and a graduate of Columbia College Chicago’s MFA program, Deeren’s work has appeared in Rosebud Magazine, Joyland Fiction, Midwestern Gothic, Great Lakes Review, and in the anthology Tales of Two Americas: Stories of Inequality in a Divided Nation (Penguin Random House, 2017).
