Meakin Armstrong

New York City

I write about books, culture, green tech, travel, and entertainment. I’ve contributed to four books. The New York Times has praised my work.

Esquire cited my work at Guernica magazine, where I am Senior Editor and Fiction Editor. Pieces I’ve edited have won awards such as Best of the Web, Best of the Net, and Africa’s top literary prize (the so-called African Booker, the Caine Prize).

For my fiction, I’ve received various fellowships—most notably to the Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference and Summer Literary Seminars in Russia. I had a script optioned by Columbia Pictures.
