The Juicy Details

Meags Downing is a queer writer, editor, and researcher raised in the Catskills and living in Rochester, NY. She received her B.S. in Literature from SUNY Brockport and studied abroad at the University of Portsmouth. Then she dropped out of grad school, and that’s where the story really begins. After working a soul-sucking job in tech for nearly a decade, she made some career changes that were good for her spirit and went back to freelance editing and research. Meags has taught classes at Writers & Books, is a published poet, and is currently working on a book (forthcoming from Cosmographia Books) that is a love-letter to the spooky folklore of New York State. She is an avid researcher of everything from Luciferian scholarship to medieval studies, and loves deconstructing the roots of stories in popular culture. Baba Yaga is #haggoals for her. Meags is a witch with specialization in protective magics and occult verification research. She loves cozy sweaters, scarecrows, haunted farms, the rural unknown, and all things Halloween. She is still slightly bitter that she never got her invitation to the Midnight Society.
