Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

There are three concrete, measurable outcomes that I hope to achieve through this activity and one potential outcome. 1) Complete the Spanish-language version of my novel. 2) Finish a line-edit of the English version of my novel. 3) Introduce my work to the Spanish speaking audience for which it is intended. Finally, 3) there is the potential that my novel will either be selected as a winner, resulting in publication in Nicaragua, or shortlisted, which would open vital inroads to the Nicaraguan literary community. I will know I have succeeded in my outcomes when I have the physical drafts in hand and I have submitted the novel to the competition.

Measurable Outcome(s)

I was able to edit my novel and create a Spanish language novella of the same text.
