Kirsten is about to graduate from the Iowa Writers' Workshop in May. We are so proud of her for following her life-long dream of becoming a writer and for pursuing her craft with her whole heart. Kirsten will add so much to the world--tell the stories of rural places and people; stories of the land; funny and wild stories.

Kirsten is very self-sufficient and modest, but many of us want to celebrate and congratulate her with a gift. We want to keep her in fancy pens and pencils for a while and contribute to her "room with a view." We want to support her success and can't wait to read her work! If you want to join in, this Plumfund is a way to give her a little cash to recognize her big achievement.

If you have any questions, you can get in touch with me, Nella Parks at nella.m.parks@gmail.com or 541-910-4098.

More about the Iowa Writers' Workshop here: https://writersworkshop.uiowa.edu/graduate-program

Note: Kirsten has contractually obligated me to write that the grad fund was not her idea. :)

Latest Update

Thank you all for contributing! We blew past the $1000 goal for Kirsten. She graduated TODAY, May 15th, and she is so grateful for everyone's support. This fund will be open to contribute until June 15.
