I have been lucky. Over the years, I have both surrendered dreams and lived others. One of those dreams is to see a foreign culture. I'm an undeveloped writer and I believe travel is crucial to the development of any writer.
I ain't ever been no where! It's sad really...
I feel like I know nothing about what is Trinidad.
I have been offered another opportunity. I have been chosen as one of four writers to attend a writing residency in Indonesia. It is exciting. I'd love any help I can get. The time will be used to finish my novel manuscript, ''Makem Liars."
Mak'em Liars is the story of three factions of Carnival Characters fighting for political control of a fictional Caribbean island, Anansi.

The amount I am asking for is to be used to pay for part airfare. The residency covers airfare from the UK to Bali. Not Trinidad to the UK. It also covers accomodation for two months. It however recommends that I am prepared with travel expenses.
I have rounded off everything to $20,000TTD.
Thanks so much for the help guys.
