Dear Friends, 

I am excited to announce that I have been accepted as one of twelve fiction writers to attend the 2018 Lambda Literary Retreat for Emerging LGBTQ Voices, the nation’s only LGBTQ writing residency, which will be held in Los Angeles, California in August. 

I have been fortunate enough to receive an award from Lambda Literary for my tuition but need your help with the remaining costs. Your contributions will help cover fees not covered by my scholarship, including room and board and travel to and from Los Angeles.

Ultimately, your contribution will allow me the opportunity to develop new material and ideas through my participation in an invaluable experience -- meeting, networking, and workshopping my writing with talented LGBTQ writers from around the world.  

Short on cash? Help me spread the word. Please share this campaign with people who would be interested in contributing and post on your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or blog. Boosting the reach of this campaign is as effective as donating.

Thank you all very much for your continued support, donations, and sharing.
