Meagan Arthur is a fiction writer from the Seattle area. Having received her BA in English with an emphasis in Rhetorical Theory from Pepperdine University in 2015, Meagan writes to dispel binary thinking and question the way we think about language’s relationship to thought. She enjoys writing psychological realism, but is also currently experimenting with cross-genre work and prose poetry. Her writing sometimes deals with landscape, altitude, and place, and other times deals with violence, sickness, and psychological classification. Meagan derives inspiration from the natural world, music, and from having grown up in a family of psychologists. Her favorite writers include Flannery O’Connor, Nicole Krauss, and Maggie Nelson. Meagan is currently pursuing an MFA in Prose at the University of Washington, where she was the winner of the Grace Milliman Pollock Award in 2017.
