About Pomegranate Words

Pomegranate Words was originally founded to address the lack of opportunities in schools for students interested in creative writing. Its most popular feature was a monthly poetry and fiction contest for teenagers, and it also offered distance learning classes and critiques. However, adults also expressed interest in the site's offerings, and Pomegranate Words eventually expanded to provide creative writing resources for writers of all ages.

Pomegranate Words is run by Meg Hartmann, who first started teaching creative writing when she voluteered with after-school programs for children while she was a student at Brown University. She later earned an MFA in poetry at the Iowa Writers' Workshop where she coordinated a writing community for first-year students, worked for the Iowa Young Writers' Studio and the International Writing Program, and taught creative writing to undergraduates. She currently lives in New Jersey where she works as a freelance writer and privately helps students with both academic and creative writing projects.
