My name is Meg Bernhard, and I’m a freelance writer.

I’ve reported on the metro desk of The Los Angeles Times and covered Spanish politics as a special correspondent; covered politics for The Boston Globe; and written about universities for The Chronicle of Higher Education.

I’ve written about overflowing rivers; fugitive rappers; ‘caravans’ of women bound for the Spanish countryside; squatters; a Barcelona sex workers’ collective; wine; and how reporting on death has helped me with my own grief.

Send me an email at megpbernhard[at] with story ideas, book recs, or just to say hello. I’d love to hear from you. Read about Spain on my narrative newsletter here.
