D. N. Keane is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Writing and Linguistics at Georgia Southern University. His academic work has been published in the Journal of Technical Writing and Communication and the Anglican Theological Review. With Samuel L. Bray, he edited the 1662 Book of Common Prayer: International Edition (IVP Academic, March 2021). Currently he is a Ph.D. candidate in the School of English at the University of St. Andrews, writing a thesis (tentatively) titled The Use of the Prayer Book: The Book of Common Prayer (1549-1604) as Technical Writing for an Oral-Aural Culture.
Mr. Keane has worked as a consultant for the Georgia Southern Writing Project, leading workshops for middle, high school, and university teachers seeking to develop their writing pedagogy. Beyond his scholastic pursuits, Mr. Keane has been known to lisp in numbers, when the numbers come: his verse can be read in The Chained Muse, Better Than Starbucks, Earth&Altar, and The North American Anglican. He has served on the Episcopal Church’s Standing Commission on Liturgy and Music, the Commission on Ministry for the Diocese of Georgia, and sings tenor in the church choir. As one might expect from a bespectacled man wont to wear bowties, he enjoys old books and baroque music, coffee and whiskey, and long rambles (both literal and figurative).
