  1. Hi Abigail! I just read your first article on DIY MFA a few minutes ago – great job! And then I read your bio… and maybe you might have mentioned where you lived during the DIY MFA call a few weeks ago, and it just didn’t register with me then… But you’re doing a workshop at Unlikely Story?? I live in Foxboro! 😀


    • Hi Sara! We are so close to each other! I’d love to meet up sometime! Yes, I’ve been working with An Unlikely Story to get a screenwriting class going but numbers haven’t panned out yet. We are going to try again later this summer! Thanks for your comments on my article – I absolutely adore multiple of yours. I am SO excited to join diy MFA!
