Just found out that I got accepted to go to VONA again this year. Pretty psyched about that.
I head there immediately after finishing up one of my summer jobs-- teaching creative writing to top high school students from all over Wyoming.
I am going to be working with ZZ Packer whose work is amazing.

developing writers of color. Held at the University of San
Francisco each summer, writers come from around the
country and around the globe to work with renowned
