Tiegan Dakin is an emerging teenage writer and artist currently residing in Australia. Her work has previously appeared in Blue Bonnet Review, Squawk Back, The Legendary, and Gravel Literary Journal. She has also been shortlisted for the Poetry Object 2014 and 2015 contests.
Tiegan, an associate editor at Zoetic Press, blogs on her blog and writes articles for Perth-based Avenoir Magazine in between her studies.
If she’s not sitting in front of her computer at home, you will probably find Tiegan riding her bike around town or visiting the local library to borrow books like I’m Watching You by Karen Rose, or a more challenging literary classic.
Brenda Shaughnessy’s poem, “Artless,” perfectly sums up her life story.
