The Mississippi Arts Commission welcomed me to its Artists Roster. You may remember I wrote earlier this year about the application and panel review process. I am pleased to be included in this select group of artists. I will be included among the dramatic and literary artists. One of the primary benefits to being included on this roster is that schools and nonprofits may use grant funds from the Mississippi Arts Commission and other local arts agencies to pay my fee for programs or workshops. I am looking forward to being out and about with Wolfsnail: A Backyard Predator in the fall when school starts up again.
