News Release! [Scholarship Received]

Back to school!

Some of you may know, some of you may not know: I’ve recently begun taking master’s classes!

On Thursday I was surprised – no, shocked – when a Western Governors University (WGU) representative walked through the door at work and handed me that massive check! I was so dumbfounded that I had no words.

How had he known where I work? Well, when I applied for the scholarship, I had to submit a resume, and he tracked me down, got approval from my employer, and surprised me with the big check and cookies for everyone at the office.

To make matters more exciting, I hadn’t told anyone at work that I had started taking classes. So, let’s be honest, a lot of people were shocked that day and I had quite a bit of explaining to do. But I have wonderful employers and colleagues. It turned out to be a fantastic celebration, and I am grateful beyond words for the scholarship.

So what does this mean for Wordbender Editing? Well, it means you’re going to get even better quality work once my master’s degree is complete!

I did put a notice on my Editing Services page, however. Time is definitely limited! But I should graduate in May of 2020. So write those books, revise those books, and be ready to send them to me in the spring because I’ll be ready!

Degree in what?

Oh! You’re right. I didn’t fill you in on that. I’m actually getting an English Education degree. I want to learn how to teach my beloved English so I can help students appreciate it and become as passionate as I am about our language. This degree will also help me communicate with you, as authors. Isn’t that exciting?

This degree will compliment my BA in Creative Writing. So here we go!
