Morgan Sullivan is a Philadelphia-based freelance writer with previous journalism experience with publications such as Philadelphia Magazine, Refinery29, ELLE, Cosmopolitan, and more. She has covered everything from celebrity profiles and deep-dives into internet subcults, to buzzy fashion trend pieces. Morgan also helped create the first woman's lifestyle magazine at Temple University— REFINE — which was nationally awarded by the Society of Professional Journalists.
It's important you know that she's a big fan of these things, in order: silk slip dresses, giving unsolicited life advice, Taylor Swift’s entire discography, and dirty vodka martinis (the dirtier, the better).
