Will Wegner is a lyricist and librettist from Appleton, Wisconsin. His work during his four years at Yale has included So, Betsy!Onward and Upward, and his senior thesis, Word Nerd, which was presented in part at the 2022 American Crossword Puzzle Tournament and mentioned in The New York Times. On the weekend, you’re liable to find him beneath a local streetlamp, chewing on a toothpick and flipping a nickel. Learn more at wegner.world.
