David Wanczyk grew up a Red Sox fan and once gave up twenty-seven runs in an inning before realizing he’d never make it to Fenway Park—or varsity. He’s coped with that by writing on novel sports for Slate, Boston Globe Magazine, Texas Monthly, and other venues. His book, Beep: Inside the Unseen World of Baseball for the Blind was published by Swallow Press in March, and he has also placed poetry, essays, and criticism in magazines such as Brevity, Pank, and Woolf Studies Annual. He is the editor of New Ohio Review, an instructor at Ohio University, and the father of two young kids.
