Inspiration Funding for poet and author Gustavo Adolfo Aybar will help pay expenses for attending the 2016 AWP Conference & Bookfair, an essential annual destination for writers, teachers, students, editors, and publishers. Gustavo seeks to find connections and contacts who could guide him in creating and completing his next manuscript, which focuses on his police academy training and the idea of being a man of color who wears a badge. The grant funds will help cover air fare, hotel accommodations, food, travel, and incidental expenses.
