Professor David Rask Behling teaches introductory creative writing, fiction writing, philosophy, and religion courses at Waldorf College. He earned his MFA in Creative Writing from Goddard College, an MA in Technical Communication from MSU-Mankato, and another MA in New Testament from Wartburg Seminary.

Most of his writing has been creative non-fiction, with essays published in regional magazines and newspapers. As part of his MFA work, he finished a novel (started back in the 1990's) and is currently submitting the manuscript to publishers. He is also at work on a collection of short stories and a second novel, both set in a small town in North Dakota.
