“Writing is gift. It is also a tool to create connection, elicit change and potentially destabilize the norm. Like tracking, writing is a lifelong endeavor that parallels the journey of being human. It challenges, celebrates, and questions all of our fears and triumphs. The practice of writing opens doorways into both our internal and external landscapes and offers new perspectives.” - Meghan Walla-Murphy
Much like her work with tracking, conservation and outreach, Meghan’s writing bridges people to their environment, both emotionally and physically. She strives to take her personal stories and make them relevant to universal experiences.
With a fierce commitment towards environmental and cultural change, through her art, Meghan works not only to disrupt unhealthy habitual cultural patterns, but to also renew her readers with compassion and connection. Her non-fiction writing integrates anecdotal moments in nature, scientific background, and human relationships, which all come together to inform and entertain her readers.
Meghan had a regular column in three Los Angeles papers for seven years before moving to Northern California where she has recently authored a book on Salmon and the Russian River. She has also published magazine articles and is working on several essays.
