Sal Glynn was born in Seattle and educated in Canada. He moved to Covelo, California in the late 1980s, where he began in publishing with Carolyn and James Robertson at the Yolla Bolly Press, a fine press and book packager. He set lead type by hand and did production work on trade books while learning the craft of editing. After a year in outer bucolia, he moved to the San Francisco Bay Area and became managing editor for Ten Speed Press in Berkeley, where he edited classics like Buck Peterson’s Complete Guide to Deer Hunting and How to Shit in the Woods. Sal currently lives in San Francisco, where has edited and otherwise produced more than 300 books of fiction, humor, self-help, cookery, management, and social issues for publishers on both coasts. He has taught classes on publishing for Media Alliance and the Learning Annex, lectured at the Bay Area Editor’s Forum, and volunteered with the creative writing workshop at Francisco Middle School. Sal has also been on faculty at the Big Sur Fiction Writer’s Workshop and the Mendocino Coast Writer’s Conference, and is a former contributor to FOCUS: Fine Art Photography Magazine. His first book, The Dog Walked Down the Street: An Outspoken Guide for Writers Who Want to Publish, won the 2007 IPPY award for excellence in publishing, the gold medal for writing/publishing.
