Kevin McCorry

Keystone Crossroads Reporter

Kevin McCorry reports predominantly on education for the Keystone Crossroads project. 

Before his current gig, he was born in a Fishtown hospital that no longer exists.

Somewhere in the middle he loaded trucks in San Francisco, hustled in the reality television racket in NYC, and taught writing courses as an adjunct at Arcadia University.

He's most interested in experimenting with narrative storytelling as a means of illuminating complex social issues.

He believes William Faulkner when he says, to paraphrase, that the problems of the human heart in conflict with itself can alone make good writing.

He also believes David Foster Wallace when he says that "in the day-to-day trenches of adult existence, banal platitudes can have life-or-death importance."

In his free time, he hikes the Wissahickon and plays in a band.

He resides in Northwest Philadelphia with his wife and son, the best baby on earth.
