About the Journalist

Will Cordeiro has swum with sharks in the Galapagos, walked barefoot through the streets of Rio de Janeiro, looked into the eyes of a wild tiger in the jungles of Nepal, and once (unsuccessfully) tried to sneak across the Russian border. Will’s nonfiction is published or forthcoming in Critical Read, Coachella Review, DIAGRAM, Nashville Review, The Offing, Pop Matters, The Smart Set, Sycamore Review, Terrain.org, Territory, and elsewhere, and Will’s poems can be seen in many outlets, including AGNI, Best New Poets, Cincinnati Review, Copper Nickel, The Threepenny Review, and THRUSH Poetry Journal. Will’s collection Trap Street won the 2019 Able Muse Book Award. Will co-edits Eggtooth Editions and is grateful for a grant from the Arizona Commission on the Arts. Will has an upcoming full-length play “Route 66 to the Grand Canyon,” commissioned by Theatrikos Theatre Company. Will received an MFA and Ph.D. from Cornell University. Currently, Will teaches interdisciplinary seminars on subjects such as Critical Geography, Anarchy, Performance Art, Place-Based Writing, Medical Rhetoric, Madness and Enlightenment, and Transgender Studies in the Honors College at Northern Arizona University.
