Emily McCullar's Profile Photo

Emily McCullar is an eleventh-generation Texan who was hired as Texas Monthly's front desk receptionist in 2014. She soon charmed her way into the fact-checking department before becoming a staff writer in 2019. She has written about celebrities, literature, music, film, politics, and history, and she likes to think of herself as a Matthew McConnoisseur. She once wrote an essay about deer hunting with her dad that was longlisted in The Best American Sportswriting, and the fact that this basically means she's a "sportwriter" is the funniest thing in the entire world.
