Joseph Bates is the author of the novel The Strikeout Artist (BlazeVOX, 2022), which has been called “a masterpiece of surrealism, but also a bighearted, hilarious, eagle-eyed story about what it means to be a friend, an artist, a teammate, and—for better and for worse—an American.” Bates’ other books include a short story collection, Tomorrowland, and a book on writing craft, Writing Your Novel from Start to Finish. He teaches in the creative writing program at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, where he is co-editor of Miami University Press.
