Megan Feldman is an award-winning writer and adjunct professor of journalism and public relations at the Metropolitan State College of Denver.
She began her career as a Central America-based freelancer in 2000 and later earned a master’s degree from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism in New York.
Megan’s features have appeared in magazines such as Glamour, Details, and 5280: The Denver Magazine, and in newspapers including the Miami Herald, the San Francisco Chronicle and the Dallas Observer.
In addition to writing for magazines, Megan leverages her experience to craft compelling copy in various formats, from press releases and white papers to Web sites, blogs and social media.
She’s also bilingual and constantly looking for opportunities to speak Spanish. When she’s not doing any of these things, she’s probably skiing or hiking.
Megan’s work has been nationally recognized. “What Happened to Abbey’s Mom,” in 5280, won Best Health Feature in the 2012 Society of Professional Journalists’ Top of the Rockies Awards and was named a 2012 finalist for the prestigious Livingston Awards for Young Journalists.
Her chronicle of a doomed GOP gubernatorial candidate, also in 5280, won Best General Political Reporting in the 2011 Top of the Rockies Awards.
While a staff writer at Village Voice Media’s Dallas Observer, Megan’s cover story about American Iraq War deserters seeking refuge in Canada was a finalist for the 2010 PEN Literary Award. In 2008, her narrative about Central American migrants riding Mexico’s “death trains” 1,500 miles to reach the U.S. won Best Feature from the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies and made Megan a Livingston Finalist.
