Hi there. I'm Meghan Murphy-Gill. As a journalist, I write about religion, spirituality, and food. I also dabble in travel writing and pop culture criticism. My writing has appeared in the New York Times, Chicago Magazine, Entertainment WeeklyNew York Magazine, Modern Farmer, the Chicago Tribune, the Utne Reader, and U.S. Catholic magazine, where I was an editor for 10 years. As a copy writer, my work has appeared everywhere from broadcast ads to textbooks to a website for the coolest coffee shop in town.

In the past I've run several food blogs and was the editor of Drive Thru, the food and dining section of Gapersblock.com (RIP). I'm also the creator of Drinking Woman, where my friend Mollie and I made and wrote about food and drinks, and interviewed other people who make food and drinks. (That project is currently on hiatus.)

I'm available for freelance writing and creative projects of all sorts: copy writing, content editing, content marketing, writing articles, producing podcasts, sitting around a table and brainstorming. I'm familiar with AP and Chicago Style. I know how to adapt quickly to house style (I've even written an in-house style guide). I'm comfortable talking with acclaimed chefs to high school students. I call people on the phone. I knock on doors. I meet deadlines. 

Oh, and Iā€™m preparing to be a priest in the Episcopal Church. AMA.
