Daniel Running


Daniel was born in Minneapolis and earned his BA in Literature & Creative Writing from Bennington College in Vermont. For the past 23 years, he taught English and Philosophy at the high school level here in DC.  Writing, and the art of it, remains centrally important, and he’s moved from the classroom to the podcasting world as the host and writer of The Canon Reviewed, to continue his work talking and thinking about great literature. Daniel finds that much of his time of late is taken up in reading and writing — and that’s been amazing.

In his free time, Daniel is an avid board and card game player, and loves throwing down some Dungeons and Dragons with his two daughters.
