My fellow jellies, can I get a little luck?
Today, at age forty-two, I begin graduate school. I am off to the wilds of Vermont for my first of five 9-day residencies — chock full of lectures, and workshops, and oodles of writing. This is followed by six months of self-directed work. Then another residency — soak, wash, repeat, again and again… for the next two years.
Specifically, I am pursuing an MFA in Graphic Design focussing on design and delivery solutions for graphic novels.
This is an amazing opportunity.
I’m also a complete nervous wreck.
So, some words of wisdom and jelly support would be greatly appreciated.
