Dinty W. Moore

Dinty W. Moore was born and raised in Erie, Pennsylvania, and spent his formative years fishing for bluegill, riding a bike with a banana seat, and dodging the Sisters of St. Joseph. He earned a BA in writing from the University of Pittsburgh, worked briefly as a journalist, and also served short stints as a documentary filmmaker, modern dance performer, zookeeper, and Greenwich Village waiter. It was only after failing at each of these professions that he went on to earn an MFA in fiction writing from Louisiana State University. A National Endowment for the Arts fellowship recipient, Moore has guest taught creative nonfiction seminars across the United States as well as in Ireland, Scotland, Spain, Switzerland, Canada, and Mexico. In addition to editing the journal, Brevity, he is on the editorial board of Creative Nonfiction magazine.
