Oh, hi. So glad you're here.


Welcome to Girl Got Guts. I'm Megan McCarty, a Minneapolis-based — for now, at least — freelance writer, editor and everything-er

As a stubborn little Taurus I was adamant on becoming a magazine editor, so that's exactly what I did. After six+ years at Tiger Oak Publications, working as a Web Editor + Digital Content Strategist for a variety of bridal magazines, I now fill my days editing website copy, writing magazine essays and watching my share of House Hunters.

Read about my latest adventures (and, well, misadventures) on Garance Doré, Rue magazine and Apartment 34. 

Interested in collaborating? Let's chat! I'm available for writing, editing, modeling, social strategy and any other form of storytelling. 

Say hello via Instagram, Twitter, LinkedInPinterest or old fashioned email at megan.leigh.mccarty@gmail.com.
