I'm seeking funds to attend the Kimbilio Fiction writer's retreat. I was chosen as a Kimbilio Fellow in 2019 but took a one-year deferral because I couldn't afford the expense. The retreat was then canceled in 2020 & 2021 due to covid-19. This year's retreat will be held from July 24-30, 2022 on the campus of Southern Methodist University at Taos.
