meglassesMeagan grew up in Alaska writing poems about injustice and hot boys. After studying poetry and literature at the University of Idaho, she spent fifteen years in government communications before breaking up with her career to pursue creative writing.

In 2014, she earned her MFA in fiction at Pacific Lutheran University’s Rainier Writing Workshop. That was a very very good time.

Her work has appeared in Narrative, Barrelhouse, and Fugue, as well as the regional anthology, Timberland Writes Together.

Meagan’s first novel, The Ocean in My Ears (formerly Conspiring to Be Meri), will be out in 2017 from Portland State University’s Ooligan Press.
