Colorado-based writer Morgan Tilton is an award-winning travel journalist and poet. In 2012, she received honorable mention for the Academy of American Poets’ Edward M. Lanna Poetry Prize. She is a bronze medalist and three-time Finalist of the past two consecutive North American Travel Journalists Association Awards Competitions for her travel writing.
Morgan covers an array of topics though most often dives into stories of adventure, travel, and outdoor industry trends. Her work is featured in Outside, Men’s Journal, SUP Magazine, Teton Gravity Research, Backpacker, and TransWorld Snowboarding among other publications.
Raised in Colorado’s stunning San Juan Mountains, she’s a life-long skier/snowboarder, hiker and explorer. Her passion for discovering new places and cultures has led her to study art and language in Italy and to summit Colorado’s highest peaks. Most recently, she dove into mountain ultra and trail running–including a 2nd overall finish at the 2016 TNF Endurance Challenge Marathon in Park City–and in 2016, made a first SUP descent of Escalante River, one of the wildest waterways in the Lower 48, with four friends.
