Hi, I'm Meep. I'm not new to writing, or forums, but I am new to this writing forum. (If you were on The Young Writers Society forums from 2004-2007 or so, "hi!") I've been writing somewhat seriously on and off since I was a teenager (early 30s now), but this year I started really trying to get my work out there. I've made a few poetry sales and I'm studying for an MFA in Writing for Children & Young Adults. I focus on writing for younger kids, mostly middle grade, and I'm experimenting with chapter books and picture books. I love fantasy, of course, and my favorite sub-genre is urban fantasy/elfpunk (think more Tithe or The Blue Girl than True Blood). I also love any kind of portal fantasy, especially stories that deconstruct or play with the portal trope.
