SO MUCH APPRECIATION TO EVERYONE WHO DONATED AS I REACHED MY GOAL :'). i cant thank you enough.

Hi everyone! I'm so excited and honored to be 1 of 12 Playwriting Fellows heading to the 2018 Lambda Literary Writer's Retreat for Emerging LGBTQ Voices next week, all under the mentorship of Luis Alfaro. 


This is an incredible opportunity I've been given -- to be part of a multi-disciplinary writing cohort as we develop our new work and form a network, and a community for the future.

BUT I still need help raising the deposits -- every cent goes directly towards tuition, room & board, all meals, etc. I've already secured a portion of the amount, and I am hoping that if you're able to, you can support me with the rest - any amount is deeply appreciated in making it possible for me to attend and come back with new plays in tow.

ALL gifts are tax-deductible. EVERY donor will receive a personal thank you from me because of course, I will be endlessly thankful, and if you want, I will also write a personalized haiku for you/ or on the subject of your choice. 
Think of it like you're buying me a drink -- and of course, I'll buy yours next time :)

Thank you <3

about the retreat:
The Writers Retreat for Emerging LGBTQ Voices was established in 2007 and is the first of its kind ever offered to LGBTQ writers: a one-week intensive immersion in fiction, nonfiction, poetry, genre fiction and playwriting. The Retreat is an unparalleled opportunity to be mentored by the very best writers in our community, to develop one’s craft, make connections with publishing industry professionals and build a strong community of peers.
