Susan Lanier

Susan joined Really Useful Media in 2019 with several years of experience working in nonprofit development and studio management. Susan ensures our studio operations run smoothly so our producers and filmmakers can focus on what they do best — telling thoughtful stories for our clients.

A storyteller herself, Susan holds an MFA in Creative Writing from Columbia College Chicago and a BFA in Photography from the Rochester Institute of Technology. Her first collection of stories, The Game We Play, was called “deliciously painful” by Paste Magazine. Her work has also appeared in MAKE Literary Magazine, Hobart, Another Chicago Magazine and elsewhere.
