This short story, After Chicago, was written in the Superior National Forest of Northern Minnesota during Cornell’s Wilderness Term in September, 2005. In addition to reading the story, I will discuss how the wilderness experience affected my writing process and the ways in which it shaped this particular work. Furthermore, I will discuss how I reconciled the wilderness that surrounded me with the more developed landscapes and themes of my work.
