About

Caitlin Myer has been called the Original Gypsy (OG). For the past few years, her home has been her suitcase. She's been on five continents and has lived in several countries. Follow her journey on Night Walk.

Myer completed a residency in spring of 2012 at MacDowell Colony, where she was recipient of a fellowship from the Rona Jaffe Foundation, for her in-progress novel, Red Wagon. Her memoir/essay "Positive I Don't Have a Uterus" was recently published in The Butter, and her short story "Everything a Woman Should Have" in Cultural Weekly. Other short stories have been published in charming, short-lived literary magazines, online journals and the occasional anthology.

Myer was recently featured on NPR's The Moth Radio Hour, with her real-life story, Near Mrs.
