Hi Everyone! I'm Jasmyne & I want to thank you so much for taking the time to visit my page!

I'm currently a full-time flight attendant living in Portland, OR. When I'm not flying around the country performing safety demos and pouring Diet Cokes, I enjoy reading and writing fiction that feature diverse characters.  

My first love has always been writing. When I found out I had been selected for the Lambda Literary retreat, I was beyond excited. This writers retreat was established in 2007 and is the first of its kind ever offered to LGBTQ writers! I'll be spending an entire week immersed in young adult fiction (I'm still pinching myself that I'll get study with emily m. danforth!). The Retreat is an unparalleled opportunity to be mentored by the very best writers, to develop my craft, make connections with publishing industry professionals and build a strong community of peers. 

Just the fact that you're here, considering donating something so that I can follow my dream of writing, means so much! No amount is too small :). And I'm even sending out personalized thank you notes if you send your address to my e-mail! Even if you don't wish to donate but you still want to drop a word of encouragement (because putting your writing out there in the world is so scary!), I would be forever grateful! The easiest way to get in contact with me is [email protected] 

Thanks for reading!
