Ann Morgan: writer & editor

About me


I'm a freelance writer and editor. My book Reading the World: Confessions of a Literary Explorer, inspired by my year-long journey through a book from every country, was published in the UK by Harvill Secker on February 5, 2015 and as The World Between Two Covers: Reading the Globe in the US by Liveright/Norton in May 2015.


My next book is a novel, a literary psychological drama called Beside Myself. It was published worldwide in English by Bloomsbury in January 2016 and has so far been bought by publishers in eight other language territories.

When I'm not writing, I can often be found performing with some of London’s professional choirs.


I graduated from Cambridge University with a first-class degree in English literature and went on to do a master's in creative writing at UEA. I also have training in sub-editing from the London College of Communication and a postgraduate diploma with distinction from the London School of Journalism.
