WRITING PORTFOLIO

Welcome

My name is Megan. I’m a Los Angeles-based fashion journalist and commerce writer interning within the design team at Windsor Smith Home. Between my academic background and work experience, I've gained a strong sense of the luxury market and know how to communicate brand values through editorial writing, digital marketing, and public relations. I cover a wide range of subjects in my writing - from travel, film to interior design - for digital publications and company newsletters.

Please look through my updated Writing Portfolio to discover more about my work.
