Katrina's VSC Residency Fund

$750 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 22 people in 29 days
Dearest Family and Friends,

I have the honor of being accepted to the Vermont Studio Center for a month long writing residency.  Participing in a writing residency, especially one of this magnitude, has always been a dream of mine. I believe it will give me the time and focus to complete the two novels I am currently working on, as well as create new work and experience life as a profressional writer.

Unfortunately, there are a few expenses that go with attending the program for which I am not currently budgeted.  I will need to pay my own travel expenses, I will be unable to work for the month of the residency, and, although given a generous scholarship for the program, it is not a full scholarship and I will need to pay the difference out of pocket.

Hence, the GoFundMe Campaign. 

This is a selfish request. I am not raising money for Swimming with Elephants Publications, nor am I raising money for a youth comunity or poetry workshops as I have done in the past. This fund is to help me realize one of my dreams.

If I reach my goal, I will be able to attend the residency and hopefully create something really special, as well as develop skills I can bring back for our local writing community.

If you can find it in your pocket books to spare some extra funds and help me attend this once in a lifetime  opportunity, please donate to my campaign.  I would be extremely appreciative and grateful for any and all contributions.

Upon returning from #WOWPS2018 in Dallas, I am even more excited to have the opportunity to be locked in a room for a month to write. I haven't bothered y'all in a couple of weeks, so time for another push. Send me some love in the form of monetary support to get me to Vermont this summer.

According to math, if 129 people donated just $20 I would reach my goal.
