I am thrilled to say that I have been accepted into the Post-MFA Creative Writing Teaching Certificate program at Antioch University in Los Angeles!
This is a low-residency program, meaning that I only have to be on campus twice in a year for ten days. I have applied for financial aid and scholarships, and have been offered a Fellowship for tuition! I am looking for help to fund travel to LA.
I’ve already reached out to couchsurfing.com and airbnb locations for lodging, so that will hopefully be taken care of on my own – what I need help with is airfare.
If I book today, the lowest price is about $350 round trip from Fargo, ND to Los Angeles, CA. (I’ve never been to LA!) So I’m not sure what the airfare will be like when I actually book on November 1.
If everyone who sees this donates one dollar ($1.00), I will be able to fund the travel to California. One dollar from each of my contacts is all I need – will you help me get there?
The Post-MFA Teaching Certificate program is going to help me learn how to effectively teach Creative Writing and English Composition classes at the college level.
I have found my passion in teaching, now I need to learn how to do it!
If I am unable to raise at least $500 before October 31, 2016, I will cancel the campaign and refund all donations – so there’s no risk.
Thank you so much for helping me achieve my dream of teaching the next generation of writers.
