About Megan Cohen

Megan Cohen (she/her) is an adventurous writer celebrated for “searing smarts… and a seemingly bottomless capacity for feeling” (San Francisco Chronicle.)

In her 20-year career of professionally rearranging the alphabet, Megan’s work has been witnessed live by theater and opera audiences across three continents (Washington National Opera at the Kennedy Center in DC, Cutting Ball Theater and Berkeley Rep in California, Southbank Centre in London, AADA in NYC, Melbourne International Comedy Festival in Australia, etc) and enjoyed onscreen by millions of players in the popular Westbound and Fashion Designer video game franchises. She recently worked as a script doctor for an animated pilot in development by former Pixar employees and has evaluated screenplays as a judge in the BlueCat and NYC Midnight screenwriting contests. Her prose and poetry have been published in outlets including McSweeney’s and Andrei Codrescu’s Exquisite Corpse: a Journal of Letters and Life. Her lyrics for Woman Walking (set to music by composer Nell Shaw Cohen) appeared on soprano Laura Strickling’s 40@40: Volume 1, nominated for the 2023 GRAMMY™ award for Best Classical Solo Vocal Album.

To keep from getting bored, in addition to the above work under her given name Megan juggles a series of pen names in multiple fiction genres and is a million-pageview blogger under a top-secret pseudonym. When she’s not writing, she loves supporting new voices as a sliding scale writing coach for authors who range from houseless youth to C-Suite executives. Her hobbies are dance, quantum physics, trying new kinds of sriracha, and sleeping really hard.

She constantly changes her hair (all pics here are since 2021) and is always open to changing her mind.
