Join the Discussion
AWP asked: If you are a student or recent graduate, where do you think your writing journey will take you next?
Some of the answers we received:
@rissy_ds: Hopefully to completing my novel!
@sixpm_ / @Paige_Six: I hope to find an outlet that wants to support my passion projects. I want to make a living hearty enough to support a home in a temperate region, near water, that sustains a large garden by writing poetry books and strange novels.
