Poet/Alicia's "Prague or Bust" Fund

Help me raise the last $1,000 to take advantage of a scholarship for a writer's conference in Prague!


Alicia here, a local poet of Southwest Detroit and a poetry teacher at local elementary and senior high schools through a non-profit(

InsideOut Literary Arts


I recently won a partial scholarship for the

Prague Summer Program

, a month long stint of workshops, readings, tours and study for writers of all kinds. As such, over the past several weeks I have been fundraising to raise $5,000 to cover the costs of remaining tuition, housing and travel. 

With the last $1,000 to raise and me being scheduled to fly out this weekend, I am THIS close to raising the rest of what I need to cover living expenses.

Help me reach my goal. Donate just $10 today so I can eat while in Prague!

And spread the word! 

Thank you so much for your support,
