About

Repeat after me: I am the Author of my Story.



Not the obstacles that stand in your way or the forces working against you. Not the naysayers who doubt your strength or make you feel unworthy. No one else is holding the pen. It’s here. In your hands. All you have to do is decide: What will my story be?


My name is Megan A. Hoak. I'm a chronically ill, permanently disabled, neurodiverse content creator. I'm also a domestic violence survivor. I'm deeply passionate about the power of story and its ability to transform lives—especially for those of us who are typically relegated to the margins of society and the publishing industry. We matter. Our stories matter; they have value and mean something. Unfortunately, if you have "different" physical, learning, or emotional needs, it can be hard to get the story-telling support you need.

I'd like to invite you to go on a journey with me. If your goal is to be a professional author or poet—or you're just looking for a way to reframe your life's story—my goal is to give you the tools you need. Using neurodiverse-friendly, trauma-informed teaching techniques, I'll support your quest to tell the truth your heart's been whispering. Let's make some noise, together. The world needs your story.

WHAT WILL YOUR FUNDS GO TOWARDS?

Accessibility Aids

       As a chronically ill, disabled, neurodiverse content creator, I need specific adaptive   tools. Your funds will help me purchase medical and mobility equipment so that I can  keep creating!

Developing My Platform

        Upgrading my webpage (mahoak.com), purchasing supplies, and offering new services.

Basic Living Expenses

  A girl's gotta eat, you know. ;)

STRETCH GOALS
I'd love to eventually to offer live, virtual classes on the following topics: 
  • Querying 101: Fiction
  • Submission 101: Poetry
  • Memoir in Verse: Telling Your Story Through Poetry
  • Poetry Revision
  • How NOT To Sell a Novel (Learn From My Mistakes)
  • A monthly, recurring virtual creative writing workshop (for fiction, poetry, etc.)
If any of the above sound interesting to you, please drop me a line a let me know!
