This piece was born during an eight-minute freewrite—a ritual at the beginning of our pair sessions.
Kaitlyn Yang is a senior in high school, and a fourth-year mentee at Girls Write Now. A lifelong city girl, Kaitlyn enjoys competitive fencing, editing her school newspaper and baking double-chocolate brownies. She loves to write poetry and short stories, and hopes to one day become a published author.
Meghann Foye is the Digital Director at Parade.com, the country's largest pop culture newspaper weekly. She has also written the novel Meternity and is at work on her second book. In her spare time, Meghann loves mentoring at Girls Write Now, reading women's fiction and finding the next Netflix show to binge-watch. She recently moved back to Marblehead, MA, the small coastal town where she grew up, and is looking for her new favorite local coffee shop.
