I just found out today that I was accepted for this summer’s Macondo Foundation workshop, which was founded by famed writer Sandra Cisneros as a place to nurture writers whose work is socially engaged. I thought it was quite a long shot for me to get into the program—which is really more of a community that includes access to a residency program and other cool support systems—so I am thrilled to have been accepted.

This writing life is so fascinating—just a few days ago I was feeling a bit down about how I haven’t had any of my fiction published yet (although I am going to be sending a few things out soon), and then this happens. It’s a bit of a roller coaster ride sometimes, this writing life. But it is MY life now, and I embrace it with open, welcoming arms.
