Amos Magliocco specializes in creative writing and has taught courses in Intermediate Fiction Writing, American Literature, and Rhetoric and Composition. A winner of the Pushcart Prize, he is currently shopping his first novel, Remedy Wheel. Set in 1934 Chicago, the book explores the cultural divide between the corporate-sponsored promises of the World's Fair and the rigid boundaries of Bronzeville, enforced by restrictive covenants and violence, where nevertheless a professional middle-class arose in the heart of the Depression. 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.
