Meggie Royer I am 18 years old, from the Midwest, and I have been writing poetry for two of those eighteen years. My main goal is to write poems that pluck at the heartstrings without completely ripping them apart. As for my writing motto, G.K. Chesterton describes my love for words perfectly: “You say grace before meals. But I say grace before I dip the pen in the ink.”
