My name is Megan Roweth and I live in Millthorpe, a small town in New South Wales, with my mum, my dad and my little sister Joanna. I started writing and performing poetry when I was 6 years old and have loved doing it ever since.
My interest in poetry started when my dad first started performing it. He walked up and down the hill learning his poems, and every day he would come home and recite a little bit more of the poem he was learning. The only problem was that the poems were interesting, so they stuck in my mind. The first poem I learnt was "Been There Before" by Banjo Paterson, and I learnt it completely by ear, just listening to my dad. I learnt some poems of my own choice after that and started to recite them at Poets Breakfasts. I also began to write my own. Now I travel around to festivals with my parents and perform at the Poets Breakfasts. I love reciting poetry
and I don't plan to stop any time soon!
