Help Lizette Leap Literary Hurdle!

Lizette's literary career has just taken another step forward.  She has been awarded a one-month July residency at the Horned Dorset Colony in upstate New York!  The Colony has awarded her a grant, which covers her rent and some expenses while she's away.  This is a pet-friendly residency, so yes, this time Peppermint will join her! That's great news.  

The bad news: Lizette is currently unemployed, and short $900 for airfare and living expenses at the residency.  She needs to raise this amount by June 15th.  Would you be able to help Lizette leap this hurdle and take advantage of this upward trajectory in her literary career?  There are some special perks up for grabs!

ALL donors receive invitations to attend the exclusive Gratitude Reading, occurring in August or September 2014. This reading is for all who donate. At this event, I will read new work that has been written during the residency.

Referral bonus: If you persuade two friends to also donate, your donation will be bumped up to the next supporter level-automatically!  To receive this bonus, your friends must mention your name as the referral source.
