Megan Buskey

I write about Ukrainian history, politics, and culture for a variety of publications. My first book, Ukraine Is Not Dead Yet: A Family Story of Exile and Return, was published by ibidem Press in 2023. 


My work has appeared in outlets including The Virginia Quarterly Review, The AtlanticThe Nation, The New Republic, n+1, NPR’s All Things Considered, The American Scholar, and The New York Times Book Review. I am a former editor at The Wilson Quarterly, the flagship publication of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, where I edited longform journalism and wrote a column that covered trends in scholarly publications. 


I have been traveling to and studying the former Soviet Union for almost two decades, including a year spent living in Ukraine as a Fulbright Fellow. I've also received fellowships from the German-American Fulbright Commission, the Logan Nonfiction Program at the Carey Institute of Global Good, and the London Library. I was born in Cleveland, Ohio,  and hold a bachelor’s degree in English literature from the University of Chicago and an MFA in creative nonfiction from Goucher College. I currently live in New York City.
