About

Thank you for coming by my Kickstarter!

I'm looking to study poetry in Prague this summer. I've gotten into the Prague Summer Program, and am hoping for assistance with the funding.

I've always loved Prague and wanted to go there someday, so when this opportunity arose, I couldn't resist the chance to apply. Now I have the chance to study poetry in one of the art and culture capitals of Europe. I'd ideally like to write a full book-length work on my time there and the city's history--like a more condensed traveler's guide--and your help will ensure I can do this to the best of my abilities.

My current goal is $2,500. This is meant to cover the cost of travel (roughly $1,500) and defray the tuition ($3,000).

My stretch goal is $4,000. If reached, I hope to do something extra great for all you, so keep sharing!

I have saved $2,500 of my own money, which will cover the majority of the tuition and spending money while abroad. Spending money will be used for museum/gallery visits, purchasing books that might aid/improve my studies, and food, because I'll need that too.

Check the link below for a sample of my work!

Risks and challenges

The main foreseeable problem would be getting the book published. I'll be working with some mentors to assist with this, but since a number of rewards would hinge on signed copies/dedications, I'll be working hard to ensure a timely delivery. I'll also email backers and keep them up-to-date on the project's progress.
