about.

Hi, my name is Megan and I tell stories. I am a writer and creative director with over 15 years of experience in advertising, film and television. I have interviewed professional athletes and cancer survivors, mapped out marketing strategies with CEOs, authored taglines for your favorite brands, directed talent and reality show stars behind the camera, and played with award-winning directors as a proud, card-carrying member of the Screen Actors Guild.

But none of that is how Fiterature started.

Fiterature began in 2011 as a place to share what I’ve learned about health and fitness, community and nutrition throughout my journey to live a “fit” life. Through incredibly supportive readers, Fiterature became so much more than I could ever imagine. It was not just a blog, it was my oxygen – especially during an unexpectedly suffocating time of heartbreak and loss.

And now here we are – 2017. After a two year halftime (there are a LOT of sports analogies on this blog, fair warning), Fiterature is back. We’re different, that’s for sure. I am learning that living a “fit” life is so much more than working out and eating well. It’s talking to each other about the hard things like mental health, addiction, infertility, injustice and divorce. It’s also sharing the joyful things like music, peanut butter, the perfect gif, a good book, Home Alone quotes and how we make days brighter for one another.

There is no place for shame here, no matter the oops. Fiterature is about being bold in our beliefs and knowing we are more than enough exactly as we are to family and friends, coworkers and our crazy attractive dermatologist that checks aaaaaaaall of the places. I don’t claim to have any answers about anything – but sometimes just saying the uncomfortable out loud leads us to answers together. Worth a shot, anyway.

And, maybe most importantly, Fiterature is about laughing hard and loving others harder.

It’s good to be back. I missed your face.
