I got accepted into the writing class the following day. I'm not really sure how big of an accomplishment it is, maybe they accept everyone when it's only a week before the class begins and there's still room. Still, I was thrilled to get in to a class intended for professional journalists. Even if I don't find a way to get paid for my travel writing I think I will learn a lot that I can put to use over the next year and into the future. Class starts this Thursday. I will let you know how it goes!
