Hi fam! I'm really excited to share that I've been accepted to my first retreat for emerging writers with Lambda Literary in August 2018. It is such a gift to have been accepted into the poetry cohort! Just so you know a bit more background on the program: 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. 

I am writing to you today because I am raising $1,650 in order to participate in this experience. The money I raise will directly support the cost for housing as well as the workshops and meals provided during the retreat.

I truly appreciate any and all contributions you are able to make. And I especially appreciate all of the warm thoughts, energy, and prayers that you can send as well. 

I have had such an incredible and big village support me over the years. That love and encouragement has helped give me the confidence to trust my voice and chase my dreams. Thank you so much for being a part of my village and community. I really couldn't do this without y'all.
