“I am Megan Figgest, a 24 year old teacher of Media Studies and Drama at Rotorua Girls’ High School.
I studied English, Film and Theatre at Victoria University and completed an Iowa poetry course at the Institute of Modern Letters.
The poets Karlo Mila and Hone Tuwhare have influenced my writing as they explore relevant issues within NZ society.
I have always been an active poet and was the winner of the 2012 Choice Not Chance poetry contest with poem “Instant Kiwi”, judged by NZ poet Hinemoana Baker.”
Her poem Stories Untold is published in New Dialogues and New Beginnings – Poetry Anthology 2013
