Wil Glavin was born in Philadelphia, raised in Manhattan, and graduated from Tufts University in 2016, where he majored in English with a concentration in fiction writing and journalism. During his time at Tufts, he wrote nine short stories, 40 articles published in the Tufts Daily, two feature-length screenplays, and his piece, “Allie,” was awarded the runner-up prize in Tufts’ most coveted fiction competition: “The Morse Hamilton Fiction Prize.” After college, he spent four years working a variety of roles at Sony Pictures, ICM Partners, and Marvel Entertainment. In August 2020, he released his debut novel, The Venerable Vincent Beattie, and on September 15th, The New York Post did an exclusive interview on Wil and the book (“The Wild Scandals of NYC’s Elite Prep School Scene”). Towards the end of 2020, he appeared on podcasts, guest lectured in college classrooms (over Zoom due to COVID-19), and received inquiries into his novel’s film/TV/podcast rights.
Outside of work, he spends his time playing both real and fantasy sports, day trading stocks and cryptocurrency, watching classic Hollywood films, traveling, playing poker, reading, and working on future novels and screenplays.
