About Meryl

meryl-strong-as-hellWelcome! I’m a TV writer for Apartment Therapy and a reporter for ClintonvilleSpotlight and Columbus Alive, a local alt weekly.

I have an essay appearing in Belt Publishing’s forthcoming book, The Columbus Anthology, due out in 2020. An essay I wrote called “Housekeeping” appeared in the Spring 2016 issue of Oregon Humanities, and another, “A House Disconnected,” is included in a 2016 Little Fiction | Big Truths print anthology about technology.

I live in the Mid Ohio Valley, after having spent several years in Chicago and Portland, Oregon. I grew up in southeastern Ohio, where I graduated from Muskingum University with a degree in journalism. I am seeking representation for a collection of essays I wrote about love, loss, and roller derby. I send out a popular personal newsletter called The Sleeper Hit. I also co-host Texas Forever, a Friday Night Lights re-cap podcast, and Head Over Heels, a podcast about GLOW on Netflix. I’m the founder and former host/producer of Story Club Columbus, a monthly nonfiction storytelling showcase.
