If you know me, you know that I am a writer and always have been. This year, I began the #52Essays2017 essay writing challenge and completely connected with it. I have been pretty consistent with the challenge and am super excited that I am producing so much work.

With that being said,  I took a big chance applying for the Voices of Our Nations Arts Foundation's summer workshops at the University of Pennsylvania to work with the renowned Kiese Laymon. And I GOT IN!!!!!  I truly feel that this has confirmed to me and reassured me that my essay-writing is a good direction for me and I seek only to improve my writing and learn from one of the very greats! I am so blessed and honored to be accepted to VONA 2017. 

Here's the deal though: In order for me to get there, I NEED YOUR HELP paying for tuition and lodging. I know it is asking a lot, but I BEG you to help a sister out, even if it's $5. It all goes to me improving on my craft and working on my greatest creative passion.  

Anything....and I mean, ANYTHING is welcome. And if you are unable to donate, I totally dig it, but please share this GoFundMe campaign and big me up! Share my blog, read my work, and see why this is so important to me!

 Please help me get to VONA 2017 so I can work with Kiese Laymon and keep producing work!
