Will Boast is a writer and journalist working in multiple forms: the short story, the novel, memoir, and long-form reporting. His 2018 novel, Daphne, is in part about the physiology of emotion, and recent articles have examined the European migration crisis, traditional sports in Kazakhstan, and witchcraft in West Africa. Currently, he is working on a second short story collection, largely concerned with the ways political and technological shifts in the 21st century are changing our ideas about travel and migration. He is Assistant Professor of Practice in Creative Writing in the Department of English Language and Literature.
