Megan Dunn

Kaituhi Tūtahi | Contributing Writer

Megan Dunn was once a video artist, until she decided to become a writer. Neither of these ideas were good ideas. She graduated from Elam and was co-director of the artist run space Fiat Lux from 1997-2000. In 2006 she completed her Masters in Creative Writing at the University of East Anglia, graduating with distinction. Her art writing has appeared in numerous publications including: Art News, Circuit, Eyecontact, The New Zealand Listener and The Pantograph Punch. Her novella Tinderbox: Burning Fahrenheit 451 has been accepted for publication as an ebook by Galley Beggar Press, UK in late 2014, pending permissions from the estate of Ray Bradbury.
