I was thrilled to learn that I’ve been awarded a Sustainable Arts Foundation award! The list of all the 2017 awardees is available on their website. SAF is an amazing organization, with a particular mission, “supporting artists and writers with families. Our mission is to provide financial awards to parents pursuing creative work. Too often, creative impulses are set aside to meet the wonderful, but pressing, demands of raising a family. The foundation’s goal is to encourage parents to continue pursuing their creative passion, and to rekindle it in those who may have let it slide.” I am grateful, as a mother of three young children, to have the Foundation’s support as I work on my next book.
