Madden CV

I grew up outside of Chicago, spent my college years in Los Angeles earning a B.A. in English, and returned to the Midwest, where I earned my M.F.A. in Fiction at Indiana University and taught courses in creative writing and literature.

I came to Drake in 2003, where I teach courses on the short story, creative nonfiction, women and literature, analytical writing, and popular culture. My work has been published in Orchid: A Literary Review, Carve Magazine, LA Miscellany, Revolver, and The Idaho Review.

In addition to teaching at Drake, I run a community writing workshop for the Above +Beyond Cancer Foundation, and I’m currently editing a collection of creative nonfiction narratives about cancer survivorship.

Outside of the classroom, I spend most of my time reading, writing, watching movies and hanging out, preferably outdoors, with my boys. Other things about me? I like to run and I excel at eating.
