Meghan Gorry is a writer of fiction and native Houstonian. She received her Bachelor’s degree from Rice University, where she studied English and Latin American literature and worked as a Writing Consultant for fellow undergraduates.  She has lived in Argentina and spent the past two years studying in Paris at the Sorbonne. Meghan is happy to be back in Houston and excited about her first year working with WITS:

I am really happy to be working with WITS this year. Children have important stories to tell, and I look forward to helping them find their writing voices.

Writing that inspired Meghan as a kid:

The Witches by Roald Dahl

“She might even be your lovely school-teacher who is reading these words to you at this very moment. Look carefully at that teacher. Perhaps she is smiling at the absurdity of such a suggestion. Don’t let that put you off. It could be part of cleverness.

I am not, of course, telling you for one second that your teacher actually is a witch. All I am saying is that she might be one. It is most unlikely. But–here comes the big “but”–not impossible.”
