Scott Winkler's fiction, poetry, and academic work have appeared in journals ranging from Elysian Fields Quarterly to Aethlon to the Journal of Popular Culture. His book The Wide Turn Toward Home was published in 2008 by Pocol Press and collects seven baseball-themed short stories and the title novella. In his work, Scott seeks to follow the principle asserted by Tim O'Brien that any story, if truly told, makes the stomach believe.
Scott teaches English at Luxemburg-Casco High School in northeast Wisconsin. He and his wife Martha live with their daughters Genevieve and Grace in a house tucked into twenty acres of cedar forest.
