Hi there.

I'm Morgan and I'm a NYC-based writer.  I graduated from Princeton University with an AB in Comparative Literature, specializing in nineteenth century Russian literature and postwar modern Japanese literature, and I have an MFA from the Bennington Writing Seminars. Thanks to my degree and natural affinity for different cultures, I speak six languages.

I'm a contributing editor at Catapult and a former Book of the Month judge. On my freelance side, my work has appeared in The New Yorker, The New York TimesThe Atlantic, ELLE, Lenny Letter, Rolling Stone, The New Republic, and BuzzFeed, among many others. I run a TinyLetter called Meraki that you can subscribe to here

I am the author of the New York Times bestselling book, THIS WILL BE MY UNDOING. My next two projects, WHY WE GET OUT and CAUL BABY, are forthcoming from Harper Books. 

I'm represented by Monica Odom of Liza Dawson Associates.
