Meghan Maguire Dahn holds a Masters in English from the University of Connecticut, where she focused her studies on Postcolonial literature and visual art. While at UConn, Meghan taught freshmen composition, participating in the planning and implementation of the first year of the Freshmen English Human Rights Pilot Program. At UConn, she also directed Poetic Journeys, a program that puts poems by students and faculty on the busses in the places normally reserved for advertising. Prior to returning to graduate school Meghan worked in Membership and Development at Mystic Seaport.
She is also a poet and is in the process of completing her first manuscript, which was partially inspired by an early RAW Specifics project, Passionate Attitudes, by Ellen Driscoll. When she is not incorporating 19th century medical practices into contemporary poetry, she is playing with her cat, learning to play cello, or cooking.
