A little over a year ago, I found out about PEN America’s Emerging Voices Fellowship. And I’ve had an AWESOME experience as a 2018 Fellow! My author mentor for the program has been Lilliam Rivera and the wraparound workshops (voice classes, UCLA Extension classes, etc.) has really helped to build out my skill set as a writer.
PEN (Poets, Essayists, and Novelists) America focuses on making sure every voice is heard.
