Writing

A compressed excerpt from my memoir was published by Catapult Magazine.

A creative nonfiction story, "Panic in the Freezer Aisle," was published by Hypertext Magazine.

I published "13 Ridiculous Questions People Ask About My Bipolar" in Buzzfeed.

My very first piece of writing, a flash fiction story called "The Illusionist," was published by The Esthetic Apostle.

Brevity Blog published my essay, "9 Things I Learned in Megan Stielstra's Memoir Course."

Here's the Audio Showcase from my memoir-generator course (I'm at 23 min. 45 sec.)

I spend the majority of my writing time revising my debut memoir. The story chronicles how a mixed manic/depressive episode derailed my life and relationships and how—by reevaluating my beliefs and examining choices I'd made—I fought my way back to reality and self-acceptance. The book tackles mental health, recovery, discrimination and the way we see others as well as the empathy and kindness we show them.
