Megan Dunn

Megan (BFA, MA Creative Writing, University of East Anglia) is the author of two previous genre-bending books: Tinderbox (Galley Beggar Press, 2017) and Things I Learned at Art School (Penguin, 2021), which reviewers called 'witty and highly entertaining', and 'brilliant, funny and quirky'. Her art reviews and criticism have been widely published and she was The Spinoff's 2019 art editor. Megan is the 2022 Writer in Residence at the International Institute of Modern Letters, Victoria University of Wellington, Te Herenga Waka. She writes with bravado and blather. Just like she talks.
