A total of twenty-eight people were engaged in high quality classes, and four prospective Loft teaching artists in west-central Minnesota attended the AWP conference. We tracked registrations for classes via the Loft’s dedicated web page, and monitored the response from the LRWN service area. We asked students to complete surveys after they finished their classes. We also solicited and gathered direct feedback from students and teaching artists. 2: Economic and geographic access barriers were addressed and mitigated through scholarships, online access, and efforts to provide on-site activities. We identified venues in west-central Minnesota communities for project activities, monitored the scholarship application and award process, and surveyed student participants in the three classes that were held.
