  • About

    Meghan has spent much time since 2005 living in Prague, and is very much in love with Czech art, literature, and culture. She is particularly interested in 20th century Czech "epistolary fiction" and travel writing. The era in which her research interests primarily reside is the interwar period—a time in which the dialogue between artists, writers, and theorists in Prague with those in Germany, France, and Russia was notably dynamic. Meghan writes a lot of letters in her own right, as well as short fiction. She is the editor of a brand new literary journal, harlequin creature, which is hand typed, pressed, and bound. She has a BA in Art History (with minors in Creative Writing and Studio Art) from New York University, and an MA in Czech Literature from Columbia. She hopes to fuse these two interests in art and literature in her dissertation work.
