Megan Cole is a tattooed food enthusiast with an obsessive reading habit. She began writing when her high school’s short-lived newspaper published her feminist opinion pieces. As a journalist Megan has worked for community newspapers, CBC Radio and Canadian Press. Her creative nonfiction has appeared in The Puritan, Invisiblog, untethered, and Hungry Zine. In her essay “How Cookbooks And James Barber Helped Me Find Fat Joy” she combined her life-long love of cooking with an examination of fatphobia. As a podcast and event host, Megan has interviewed Michelle Good, Steven Price, Billy-Ray Belcourt, Ivan Coyote and more. She is at work on her first narrative nonfiction book titled Nice Boys Don’t Kiss Like That: Womanhood Explored through 90s Rom-Coms, MSN Messenger, and First Loves. When Megan isn’t writing, reading, knitting or cooking, she’s working as the director of programming and communications for the BC and Yukon Book Prizes. She lives and works on the territory of the Tla’amin Nation in BC.
