Paschen teaches in the MFA Writing Program at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Readers include Rosanna Warren, Angela Jackson, Calvin Forbes, Christina Pugh, Chris Green, Tony Trigilio, Simone Muench, Erika T. Wurth, Valerie Wallace, Helen Spica, Sebastian Bitticks, and Phillip James Cozzi.
