Tyler McCloskey


Tyler McCloskey is originally from Altoona, PA. He earned his BA in Creative Writing at the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg under the tutelage of Lori Jakiela, Dave Newman, Stephen Murabito, and several invaluable mentors outside of the writing program.

He currently works as a Publications Specialist at the Instituto Internacional de Literatura Iberoamericana while juggling passion projects on whichever of his latest obsessions. He enjoys writing about food, culture and travel, and plans to write about his experiences as a Peace Corps Volunteer in the Philippines from 2010-2012 for his final manuscript.

His work has appeared in National Geographic's Glimpse, TRVL, and Route 30 in addition to several other mercenary writing projects. Feel free to reach out as he welcomes creative collaboration of all sorts:
