Graduate School, Here I Come!

DSCN2995Wow, so much has happened since I last posted. Now, I am a second-year graduate student at George Washington University pursuing a Master of Arts in Professional Studies in Publishing. I successfully completed my first year of graduate school (thank you, Jesus!). I’m gearing to go back on August 28. I already know that this semester is going to be a BEAST! Pray for me, y’all.

It is my goal and dream to start my own publishing house, La Muse Press, hence, why I am back in school after earning a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing and Publishing Arts from the University of Baltimore. Yes, there are plenty of independent publishers out there. So what would make La Muse Press different?

I am committed to publishing the works of people of color and women. As a Black woman, I want to see our stories told and shared to the world. Our stories matter too. Representation is important.

Speaking about sharing stories, check out my latest short story “The Midnight Knock.” The story is about a young woman who recently lost her mother. Surprisingly, she receives a knock on the door. Who could the knock come from? Her mother? A ghost? You just have to read to find out. Click here to read it. 

Enough about me. What about you? What dreams are you working on? Remember not even the sky is the limit. Keep pushing and dreaming. You will make it! With Christ, He makes the impossible, possible. Stay blessed.
