I just found out I got accepted to the Palm Beach Poetry Festival's advanced writing workshop with Kim Addonizio.
I have worshiped that woman for sooo long from afar. I'm jumping out of my pants, I'm so happy. And yet: It's quite expensive -- I did manage to get a hotel room under 70 dollars a night, when most of the suggested housing was upwards of 200 a night. But still. No more buying books, or clothes.... or food or toilet paper.
Okay, maybe I'm exaggerating. But still. Kim Addonizio!! I get 5 days of workshops with her. I'll probably find a way to snip a little piece of her hair to keep in a shrine, as if she were a saint. Or a finger bone might do.
