ACHF Arts Access
I will engage with more than 120 English and writing students about my novel and writing and publishing in general. If I visit at least four high school English classes and three college writing classes to read from my novel and discuss writing and publishing, I will have achieved outcome 1. 2: I will read to public audiences totaling at least 300 people in at least three venues. If I give a reading at Minnesota State University-Mankato and at least two public readings in Twin Cities venues, I will have achieved outcome 2.
I spent an entire day speaking with 7th grade English Language Arts students about writing and publishing, reaching 192 students (six classes of 32 each). I spoke with four university classesthree undergraduate classes at Anoka-Ramsey Community College and one graduate class at Minnesota State University, Mankatoon the topic of making a career of writing and editing, reaching a total of 62 students. I evaluate the degree to which I achieved my intended outcome by comparing my intended outcome of reaching 120 students with my actual outcome of reaching 254 students. The result is that I reached more than twice as many of the individuals than intended, which means I more than fulfilled my intended outcome. 2: I participated in a reading at the What's Up Lounge in Mankato, Minnesota on September 18, 2013, at which about 80 audience members were reached. On Friday, February 21, 2014, I gave a reading at Honey in Minneapolis, Minnesota, at which about 25 audience members were reached. I evaluate the degree to which I achieved my intended outcome by comparing my intended outcome of reaching 150 adults to my actual outcome of reaching 105. The result is that I reached 45 fewer adults than intended, falling short of my intended outcome. I still consider this a successful outcome because the audience reached was enthusiastic, and information about my Artist Initiative grant reached a larger pool of potential audience members even if they did not make it to one of the readings.
