Amos Magliocco specializes in creative writing and teaches Fiction Writing, Creative Nonfiction, and American Literature. A winner of the Pushcart Prize, his first novel, Remedy Wheel, was described by Publisher's Weekly as a "sprawling, highly-literary tale" and "a grand old story." He is currently finishing his second novel, The Invigilation Room, about a young married couple from Nebraska who become entangled with Shakespeare conspiracies and their own obsessive natures in pre-World War One London. He is also assembling a collection of essays on his early-summer hobby of storm chasing, the first two chapters of which have appeared in The Missouri Review and Isotope. Other work has appeared in the anthology The Habit of Art: Best Stories from the Indiana Fiction Workshop (Indiana 2005), and journals such as Yemassee, RE:AL, Oxford Magazine, and Poets & Writers. He is a recipient of a Peter Taylor Fellowship in Fiction from the Kenyon Review Writers Workshop and the Warren Wilson Fellowship from Indiana University.
