Margo Vansynghel has been a writer as long as she can remember. Even before straying from the Belgian seaside (where she was born) to pursue degrees in Art History and Journalism, she worked as a newspaper and magazine journalist and critic, and still does today. When she’s not writing, reading or seeking refuge in museums and galleries, you can find her behind a camera, shouting at heedless car drivers from her bike or documenting conditions in homeless camps.
