Wil Glavin discusses why the pandemic provided the best time to publish his debut novel “The Venerable Vincent Beattie,” side hustles, and investing.
Wil Glavin was born in Philadelphia, raised in Manhattan, and graduated 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.”
He has spent his past four years working a variety of roles at Sony Pictures, ICM Partners, and Marvel Entertainment. Outside of work, he spends his time watching classic Hollywood films, playing both real and fantasy sports, traveling, playing poker, reading, and working on his second novel. He currently lives in New York City. You can connect with him on LinkedIn, Twitter or Instagram.
