Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Minnesota artists are able to expand or further develop their artistic abilities through varied learning opportunities. More Minnesotans are able to engage in or with the work of Minnesota artists.

Measurable Outcome(s)

I was able to complete another draft of my novel for my agent send out to publishers and to attend a writing workshop in Taos, where I met a mentor who evaluated my manuscript and agreed to blurb the book if published. After final submission to my agent, we agreed that I would need one more pass at revision before the book could be sent out, though the revision was small. The book will be circulated in July, 2013. 2: I co-taught a writing workshop for girls ages 11-15 at Rondo Library.
