Reese Francis  HOLLIS, NY
Hi everyone! I am Sherese Francis. I am a Queens writer and blogger. Currently I am in need of a new laptop to continue the work I do as a writer -- freelance work, my blog Futuristicallyancient.com, writing a novel/poetry collection, possible upcoming residencies (ex. Sula's Room), etc. Without a laptop, I am greatly limited in my ability to work. The funds I raise will go towards buying a new laptop and other materials I need for it. I would like to be able to get one within the next few weeks. Please support. I would be so grateful to anyone who does and would create a personal post on my blog and social media dedicated to everyone who does!

Thank you to the two new donors for supporting my campaign! E-hugs to you!

Here's a fact about me: I have an interest in studying metastory and archetypes; I almost wanted to major in psychology in college. I believe all stories are connected and reveal not just who we are and who we have been, but the possibilities of what we can be.

This is one of my favorite quotes from the musician Sun Ra:
“The myth is not but not is the future potential..."
