I am raising £3,600 to fund my MA in Creative Writing at Kingston University, which will help me achieve my dream of becoming a successful author.
My name is Carol and I have studied Creative Writing; beginners, Intermediate and Advanced. I have written four novels, as yet unpublished. I am very fortunate to have this chance to further my skills.
It is important to me because years ago, after winning a prize in a competition for a piece of poetry that I wrote, I wanted to write a novel, but then my children came along and I didn't have the time for writing.
The poem I wrote went into a calendar that was sold for Dens, the homeless charity. A pamphlet of more of my poetry was created and that too was sold to raise funds. All of the proceeds went to Dens. I was delighted that my work helped the homeless.
When my children were older, I resumed my interest and recently, when I finished my last course in Advanced Creative Writing, I decided to apply for an MA.
This was something I thought was out of my reach, so imagine my delight when I was accepted for a place at Kingston! It is a dream come true for me. Just being accepted has given me such a confidence boost and I know the course will give me the best chance of achieving my dream.
Whilst I attend University, I have budgeted for travel expenses, living expenses, books, food etc, but I find I have a shortfall when it comes to fees. Finding donors would be the solution to my problem, and the impact would be great.
