Ohio native Meg Cox has been earning her living as a writer since graduating from Northwestern University in 1975. She was hired as a staff writer by the Wall Street Journal in 1977, at age 24, and worked at the WSJ in Chicago and New York for 17 years.
While at the Journal, Meg contributed hundreds of front-page stories and was lauded for her feature writing. Her beats included financial futures, agriculture, the business of the arts, and publishing. Since the birth of her son, Max, in 1994, Meg has written for many national magazines, lectured and taught all over the country and authored five books. She continues to contribute weekend arts features to the Wall Street Journal.
Her two main specialties are FAMILY TRADITIONS and QUILTING, two wildly misunderstood topics. Both are thought to be old-fashioned and un-hip which could not be farther from the truth.
Her expertise on QUILTING stems partly from the 25 years that she has been a passionate quilter. Additionally, Meg served on the board of the national nonprofit Quilt Alliance for 10 years and was president for 6 years. She writes a popular free monthly e-newsletter called Quilt Journalist Tells All. See her commentary on modern quilting in the hit 2011 documentary, Stitched.
