Megan McNamer prepared for a career in writing by studying ethnomusicology. “I like to write about geographies of ambivalence,” she says: “the liminal, in-between places where travelers meet their destinations.” Her essays have appeared in several anthologies and a variety of magazines, including Salon and Sports Illustrated.
