Like many girls, Meg Sipos wanted a pony. Unlike most women, she never grew out of it and still asks for a horse every Christmas. Eric Botts has yet to deliver on this request, so she intends to harass him on the matter until he gives in. Sipos earned her BFA in creative writing at Penn State Erie, The Behrend College, where she served as fiction editor for the literary journal Lake Effect. In 2018, she will graduate with her MFA in fiction writing from George Mason University, where she teaches English composition and literature and writes morbid stories about Erie, Pennsylvania, which she and Eric refer to as “The Saddest Place on Earth.” She edited nonfiction for the literary journal So to Speak from 2015 until 2017. Although she looks forward eventually starting a vegetarian restaurant with Eric, she is a little less certain about giving their sure-to-be-delicious dishes disgusting names like “Garbo Muncher” or “Yeasty Mac.”
