As tave myliu Lietuva! (I love you, Lithuania!) Nearly four years ago I attended a writing seminar through SLS (Summer Literary Seminars) with a rag tag bunch from my college Augustana. Here we had the opportunity to interact with writers from all around the world in the little known gem of Vilnius (the capitol city). Here I fell in love with a city and its people of history and resistance and survival. Now, years later, I have a chance to go back. I submitted "Out of Africa" (which can be seen as a rough draft on my blog leighlandhook.wordpress.com) to the SLS Annual Literary Contest and won a fellowship. However, this aid only covers a small portion of the cost of tuition. I will need to acquire airfare and enough money to cover other travel cost (lodging, food, etc.). The Kicker: I need to have my tuition paid in full by July 1st, 2012. It has been a dream of mine to return to Lithuania the moment I boarded the flight home. Anything helps. Thank you so much.
