About

Welcome to the website for Micaela Myers — a simple site to share some of my writing.

My passion for writing goes back to when I was about 6 years old. I love to learn new things and capture them in writing. Ever since graduate school I've made my living as a media professional.

After completing my BA in literature and writing, I earned my MFA in writing from Vermont College. You can read some of my published fiction using the links to the left. My story "A Cow in the Living Room" won the River Oak Review's 2001 fiction prize, and my micro fiction "Baby Doll" was honored in Binnacle's 2008 Ultra-Short Competition. 

Since 2002, I've been a professional magazine editor and writer. I started my editing career at Horse Illustrated Magazine, where I stayed for more than four years. From 2006 - 2013 I worked at Firebrand Media LLC in Laguna Beach, Calif. As group editor, I oversaw Laguna Beach Magazine (winner of the 2010 and 2012 Maggie award for Best City Magazine), Newport Beach Magazine, Bespoke Magazine, Montage Magazine, Preferred Lifestyles magazine, Loews Magazine and Sea Island Life magazine.

In the summer of 2013 I moved to Laramie, Wyo., to take a job at the University of Wyoming as editor of UWyo Magazine.

I'm also a horsey girl and have written three equestrian books: The Horse Illustrated Guide to Trail Riding and Trailering (BowTie Press), and Knack Leg and Hoofcare for Horses (Globe Pequot Press). 

I love to travel and have been to 14 countries so far, in addition to living in the eastern Caribbean for a year. A few of my travel articles are uploaded on this site.

I have three adopted dogs, and I have volunteered with a number of nonprofits. Click here to learn more.

Enjoy the site, and thanks for stopping by.
