I'm glad you're here.
A couple of years ago I found myself in a position where I needed to (and was able to!) return to school. I had always wanted an MFA in Creative Writing, but I was afraid that if I took that leap, I wouldn’t be able to find a job that would allow me to be fully autonomous again. When I was talking to my daughter about returning to school, and the different ideas I had (teacher, child advocate, disability studies, etc.) she said
“But Mom, I thought you wanted to be a writer?”
She was right. I did. And I am. In Dec 2019, just before the pandemic hit, I attended my first MFA Residency with Antioch Los Angelos. Sun, palm trees, ocean, sand, and many new friends, I embarked on a two year journey (during a pandemic) that got me to where I am today.
A writer. A mom. And an MFA graduate.
