Byko, Adam | English Language and Literature

I am thrilled to be joining the Archimedean team for this 2020 school year. A Pittsburgh native, I first moved to Florida after completing my BS in English at Slippery Rock University. In Florida, I pursued my MFA in creative writing as a Provost Fellow at the University of Central Florida. At UCF I honed my craft as a fiction writer, publishing ten short stories in national literary magazines, while also teaching the first-year composition at the college level.
At Archimedean, I look forward to helping students engage mindfully with how writing works in real-world contexts, while also sharing my own passion for writing and literature. When not teaching or writing, you can find me watching NBA basketball, drinking too much coffee, and courting non-lethal encounters with alligators.
