Chris Morgan

Writer and Editor

I am a writing professional who lives and works in London, Ontario, Canada. Since 2007, I've been contracted by SCENE magazine, a long-running local periodical.

In addition to work produced during my time with SCENE, I've authored articles on a range of topics, including technology, science, philosophy and art.

Good writing results from a sincere love of language and the desire to communicate meaningfully with other people.

These are the values at the core of my work.
