Meara is a journalism senior with an interest in magazine journalism and long-form storytelling. She has previously interned at The Dallas Morning News, Edible Austin magazine, Austin Fit Magazine, Texas Highways and, most recently, Texas Monthly. She’s written all sorts of pieces, from hard news stories to long features to listicles, and has truly enjoyed all of it.
Meara also really likes to help others strengthen their writing abilities. She edited stories in the news department of The Daily Texan for multiple semesters and currently writes for the paper. She thinks it’s fun to work with others on their writing, whether it’s to see their skills improve or just to catch a couple of AP style errors. She thinks editing is important no matter how good of a writer you are.
These days, Meara spends her free time drinking coffee, reading and getting outdoors whenever she can (while keeping a safe distance from others).
