Meghan Brewster currently lives on the Far South Coast of NSW. A few years ago, she made the difficult decision to leave her career as a practicing visual artist and Visual Arts teacher to pursue a career in writing. Since then, she has been writing and working online.
Meg runs the online medical journal itp&me[dot]com; the largest Australian website about living with the autoimmune disease, Immune Thrombocytopenia. In 2015 she self-published her first book How to Heal a Bruise, which is now one of the top selling books on Amazon in her niche. A year later she followed it up with the complimentary pregnancy manual Bellies, Babies and Bruises, while on maternity leave.
Meghan writes book reviews for her emerging writers’ website, Manuscrapped [dot] com; an emerging writers blog, as well as freelancing online writing about pregnancy, labour and caring for babies for a number of parenting websites.
Meghan has run several blogging workshops.
She contributed to the 2017 Pilot Press writers’ diary (which you all should buy) and has been a part of the #pitchbitch initiative encouraging females to be more forthright with applications and submissions of their work.
Meghan has a Bachelor in Fine Art, majoring in painting and a Bachelor of Teaching, Visual Arts.
Meghan currently supports her fiction writing by working part time for an Australian online business development company. Meg divides her time between writing, blogging, dancing and caring for her son, while currently working on her first long form creative fiction.
