Since joining West Wing Writers in 2013, Chris Fox’s work has been heard from pulpits and podiums across the country, on topics ranging from social justice to sustainability.
Chris has collaborated on several books, including a New York Times bestseller, and written commencements and op-eds for CEOs, nonprofit heads, and some of TIME Magazine’s Most Influential People. As a part of West Wing Writers’ highly regarded humor writing team, he has contributed jokes that have been quoted in the pages of The New York Times and beyond.
When he’s not helping clients tell their stories, he’s writing his own. Chris earned his MFA in Creative Writing from Hunter College, where he studied the craft of storytelling with award-winning authors including Peter Carey, Colum McCann, and Claire Messud. His short fiction has appeared online and in print, including in The Kenyon Review, where his story was called “unfortunately timely.” In a good way.
Before West Wing Writers, Chris taught English and coached speech and debate, including assisting at his alma mater, Regis High School. Since then, he’s brought that coaching and classroom experience to teach creative writing to college students and communications strategy to nonprofit executives.
Chris is originally from Sea Cliff, New York, and graduated Phi Beta Kappa and magna cum laude from Williams College.
