It's only February, but this year has come in with a full force! I have been submitting to several opportunities and working towards my goals. I have been praying to God that all my dreams come true. So far it's been happening!
In January, I traveled to El Paso to do some research for my play Fae and Paciencia. I got the chance to see many sites and get a feel for the city. This will help with rewrites!
Feb. 11th, I was asked to come and present at the 1st Annual Womyn of Color Retreat at Texas State University in San Marcos! It was a beautiful experience and I got the chance to share writing with three dynamic groups of college women! I am grateful to Sykller Walkes and Ms. Joni Wilson for inviting me. I am encouraged because the next generation of womyn is fierce and ready to change the world.
I am proud to announce that I am a Finalist for the Emerald Play Prize, a new biennial Prize to be awarded by the Seattle Public Theatre. I am a finalist along with Emily Dendinger, Aurin Squire, Eric Pfeffinger and Shontina Vernon. This is all so exciting!
I am grateful for all of the support that I have gotten over the past years! You all keep me going.
