Megan Hogan, Associate Editor
Megan Hogan is looking for narrative and idea-driven nonfiction, especially overlooked or revisionist history, literary and investigative journalism, science, nature, culture, biography, memoir, and essays. She’s especially drawn to stories with heart—the sort that make you fall in love with the world a little more—although she also loves moral complexity and arguments so counterintuitive they make you question what you believe. She’s been living in Wyoming since the start of the pandemic, so she loves stories from flyover states. And she adores anything badass or bizarre.
Megan is currently editing books about Alexander Graham Bell’s work in deaf education (and the failure of good intentions), how the Ultimate Fighting Championship evolved from human cockfighting to pop culture phenomenon, and the quest to transplant the human soul. A graduate of Princeton University, she joined Simon & Schuster in 2014, after two years at a translation agency in Paris.
