Teralyn's MFA Fund

$7,800 goal

Teralyn Pilgrim  HATTIESBURG, MS
I decided to become a novelist when I was eight years old. Now that I have two finished novels, my writing is as good as I can make it on my own... and it's not good enough for me. Time to get a Masters in Fine Arts!

To raise money for school, I teach three writing workshops and I critique others' writing via this link . The workshops are Hone Your Technique, How to Write a Lot Really Fast, and Journal Writing to Fit Your Life. This GoFundMe page gives my friends and family the opportunity to support me without taking the workshops, if any of them so desire.

Why $7,800?
My goal is the cost of tuition for the first semester. It's a low-residency program, which means I stay at the school for a week each semester doing intensive classes and workshops and then do the rest online at home. Low-recidencies can be more expensive and they don't offer funding to offset the cost of tuition. There aren't any local schools offering MFAs though, and I can't relocate my family, so low-res it is! 

A big thank you
I am already touched by the enormous enthusiasm I've recieved from my friends. Their excitement gives me confidence that I can get a degree even as a busy mom, that I will find funding for it all, and that I am worth investing in. If you're here reading this, I don't even care if you give me money; I want to give you a hug and say how much I appreciate you.
