Though he was born in Philadelphia, educated at University of Missouri, and spent time in Frankfurt, Germany as a member of the U.S. Army, Ted Schaefer is largely considered an Illinois poet, working many years as a professor at the College of Lake County in Grayslake, Illinois. His courses covered not only English composition but also mythology and fairytales, journalism, and even technical writing. This author of After Drought and The Summer People and a contributor to New Letters magazine, reads from his work as well as discusses his writing process.
