Traveling Writer Loving God, Loving the World, and Loving People

megan gieske


I am a traveling writer & photographer living in Cape Town, South Africa. Originally from Fredon, New Jersey, I have received recognition for my poetry, writing, and work as a Nonprofit Storyteller in eight countries, while traveling to twenty-seven. I specialize in nonprofit storytelling, responsible travel and culture. I've showered with an elephant in the Western Ghats, cage dived with great white sharks, and kissed a cobra.


Driven by a gaze of love and grief, my writing humanizes world issues and is based on my own experiences. My writing is not beautiful because it is easy; it is beautiful because it is hard.
