October’s Writer

(Drumroll please…) Our October writer is Emily Parenti!

Emily Parenti is a writer and recent graduate of DePaul University’s English Literature and Professional Writing programs. During the 2013-2014 academic year, she served as Co- Editor-in-Chief of the university’s literary magazine, Crook & Folly, which publishes graduate and undergraduate creative work. She has since worked as an editor on various other projects, including a chapbook distributed by a new Chicago-based journal of creative nonfiction, Slag Glass City.

Emily’s poem, Execution Points, will be on view at CMM Framing for the first three weeks of October. Literature Emitting Diodes is proud to be included in Chicago Artists Month, and we are excited to feature Emily’s work as part of it.
