Writer and fly-fishing guide Callan Wink is the author of the debut story collection Dog Run Moon, published last year. The book garnered the appreciation not only of reviewers, but also of some of Wink’s most well-loved progenitors in writing about life in the American West – Tom McGuane, Joy Williams, and Jim Harrison, among others – and has been shortlisted for the prestigious International Dylan Thomas Prize as well as named honorable mention for the PEN/Hemingway award.
In November 2015, Wink’s novella In Hindsight launched the new online-only feature, New Yorker Novella, in which the magazine publishes online a work of fiction that – in the words of fiction editor Deborah Treisman – “we weren’t able to fit into print but couldn’t imagine letting go of.” Wink is the recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts creative writing fellowship and a Stegner fellowship at Stanford University. His stories have appeared in The New Yorker, Granta, Playboy, Men’s Journal, and The Best American Short Stories, among others. A native of Michigan, he lives now in Livingston, Montana.
