Prof Kelcey Ervick Parker was featured in a Faculty Spotlight at Inside IU:
IU South Bend professor and author Kelcey Ervick Parker has the best of both worlds
They say you can’t have your cake and eat it too, but award-winning author and IU South Bend professor Kelcey Ervick Parker disagrees.
“I’m really fortunate that my teaching overlaps so much with my writing,” Ervick said. “It’s pretty ideal.”
She secured a position as associate professor of English and director of creative writing at IU South Bend after receiving her doctorate from the University of Cincinnati. On the transition, Ervick said she came from “a large Midwestern university on a big river” to a “smaller Midwestern university on the banks of a smaller river.”
A busy teaching job didn’t hinder her writing in the slightest. Most recently, Ervick is one of the Indiana authors to contribute to the IU Press book “Winesburg, Indiana.” In the short story, “Limberlost,” Ervick tells the heartbreaking tale of a woman who finds herself stuck in a small, forgotten town because of the saddest of circumstances.
In addition to “Limberlost,” Ervick is the author of two other books, “Liliane’s Balcony” and “For Sale by Owner,” both centered on the tragic and twisted lives of female characters.
