Emerge It Somewhere Else, Bub

Dear Emerging Voices Applicant:  
Thank you for applying to the 2012 Emerging Voices Fellowship. We regret we are unable to offer you a place in the 2012 program.  
There were an overwhelming number of exceptional applicants, and unfortunately, a very limited number of spots available for Fellows. We wish you the best of luck in the future.  
Sincerely, Libby Flores,

Best of luck in your future endeavors said...

I love that the program is restricted to those who have not received a degree in creative writing and who do not already have major publishing credits. It's nice to see an organization support writers who take less traveled paths to becoming writers.

you have to be pretty lucky,lucky enough in life to get this, and yes i believe in luck because if was lucky enough, I, myself would have a natural god given skill in writing.

I'm going come out with a hip hop album and go platinum way before I'll ever get a emerging voice found lol and no this is not my rejection.
