Spring Travel Fund

From Octavia C. Saenz

I'm raising money to go to the AWP writer's conference in Portland and a wedding in New Hampshire!

More Info

The AWP (Association of Writers & Writing Programs) Conference & Bookfair is one of the largest and most important writing events each year, with tons of workshops, panels, and small presses bringing their best work to share as a community of professionals. I went last year in Tampa and it was incredible and so, so rewarding to be surrounded by people in all positions and levels of development in my field. 

Also, the Emerge Anthology put together by Lambda Literary, which I'm featured in, will launch at this event and I want to grab as many copies as I can carry!

The other part of this fundraiser is a trip to New Hampshire to go to my Lambda roommates wedding! Jen Cox is one of my favorite emerging authors and also one of my favorite people on Earth! Two of my writings mentors will be in New Hampshire, too, so it's sure to be one of the highlights of my year. 

My fundraising goal is only $1000 because I have a place to stay already set for both trips, so all I need to cover is two relatively inexpensive flights and food. I'm sure we can come up with this all together!
