Megan Wildhood is a neurodiverse writer, a saxophone player, and a registered scuba diver. She is an advocate for those experiencing mental and emotional distress, as her work at a crisis center in the city that is ground-zero of this country’s housing crisis galvanized her to devote more of her vocational and creative efforts on behalf of the marginalized. As shared on her website, “I love words; there is no such thing as ‘just semantics.’ Words are worlds. Words create things and change minds without brain surgery. Words matter.”

What You’ll Learn This Week:

  • How to channel anger and frustration into a strong pitch for your dream byline
  • Why it matters to stand up for yourself — and others — in everything you write
  • The significance of using your voice to say what you want to say confidently and unapologetically 
  • How working with editors to reframe your piece can help your words be heard by a larger audience (and make a bigger difference!)
