Tamryn Spruill takes the reigns as Editor-In-Chief at SB Nation’s Swish Appeal after rising through the ranks at Golden State of Mind: first, as a Contributing Writer/Editor, and then as Associate Editor of Editorial Content. She has been a fan of women’s basketball since the 1996 inception of the WNBA. Her writing has appeared in Teen Vogue, Mask magazine, High-Post Hoops (nee Summitt Hoops), and elsewhere. She is Founder/Editor-In-Chief at Robocup Press, an indie publisher of eccentric hybrid literature and poetry. (She refuses to abandon her artsy fartsy leanings for anyone; she also refuses to forsake her love of basketball.) Tamryn holds a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from Goddard College and a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish and Journalism from the University of South Carolina. She stands 5-foot-short on a good day, after lots of yoga, and she is aware of this irony.
