Courtney E. Morgan
I’m an author, teacher, and creativity consultant + coach, dedicated to helping people discover and harness their creative + sexual power and vitality.
My passion is in helping people face and reduce shame and harmful stories around their innate creative and sexual power and to re-story their narratives through acceptance and empowerment.
I received my MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Colorado, Boulder, where I also taught creative writing workshops for over five years. My first collection of stories, The Seven Autopsies of Nora Hanneman, was a semifinalist for the FC2 Ronald Sukenick Innovative Fiction Prize and was published by FC2 Press in Spring 2017.
My writing has also been published in Lunch Ticket, Pleiades, The Red Anthology, American Book Review, and others. I am a recipient of the Thompson Award for Western American Writing, and was longlisted for the Diana Woods Memorial Award at Lunch Ticket and Glimmer Train’s Short Story Award for New Fiction.
I am the founder and managing editor of The Thought Erotic literary journal on sexuality and gender. I teach at Lighthouse Writers Workshop, The Gathering Place women's shelter, and personalized on-site and online writing and healing courses. I currently live in Denver with my son and am working on my next novel.
