In the lead up to Words & Women 2013 we will be posting profiles of the readers, performers and artists who will be contributing to our events on International Women’s Day.
The first is Megan who will be reading in the evening in the Fusion Digital Gallery. Megan is the current Charles Pick Fellow at the University of East Anglia. She graduated from UEA with a BA in English Literature and Creative Writing in 2004 and MA in Creative Writing Prose in 2005. Since when, besides pursuing her own writing, she has worked as an editorial reader and creative writing mentor.
Megan’s working on her first novel which documents the cultural development of New York City through the lives and work of four major figures from its history, namely the writer Edmund White, photographer Robert Mapplethorpe, urban planner Robert Moses and poet Walt Whitman.
