About Megan Paul

Having been blind since birth, I offer a unique and often amusing insight on life. I reflect on such experiences as growing up on a farm, attending boarding school, teaching abroad, education and adventuring with my guide dogs. I also deliver talks to raise awareness of disability-related barriers and how these can be overcome through collaborative working. Over five years' involvement with Toastmasters International have accustomed me to giving talks; many of these have won awards at regional level.

I have a BA and MA in Creative Writing and run writing workshops. I also offer readings of my fiction.
