Hi, my name is Megan. I'm glad to be invited. I often crave to be part of a writerly community, but I couldn't hack the notorious poetryslamming, as I don't do the whole BDSM thing, so I'm glad positivity is emphasized here. I'm 23, I recently graduated from The Evergreen State College in Olympia, WA and moved to Los Angeles, California. I live with my lobster, writer Timothy Green, who I hope will also join this place. He is the editor, and I the assistant editor, of the poetry journal RATTLE. I have been writing since I was 3, but am just now starting to get serious about it and accept that it's what I want to do for the rest of my life and that that's okay. I've been published in some magazines but you probably don't care about that so I won't list them. I have a chapbook I'm trying to get published. I'm just starting to read my poems at open mics, which I find terrifying and kinda fun. Poetry has thus far been my main focus, but I'm actually really into fiction right now, so I'll probably be posting older poems that could use some work (lord knows I have a lot of those). I just read over this post and God, I'm really boring. But I look forward to getting to know you all better and sharing and caring and all that jazz. Thanks again for having me.
