|Georgia queer writer named Lambda Literary Fellow|

Sarah Fonseca of Atlanta is currently finishing up her BA in Creative Writing at Georgia Southern University in Statesboro, Ga., writing a memoir on being a queer Latina working in a Mexican restaurant and was recently the only person from Georgia to be selected to be a Lambda Literary Fellow.
As part of the fellowship, Fonseca, 23, has the opportunity to attend an emerging writers' retreat in L.A. — but she readily admits she doesn't have the funds to make the trip. She's asking for donations from individuals willing to help her achieve a major goal. People can donate by visiting this link.
We talked to about her aspirations as a writer, the memoir she is working on and what the gay scene in Statesboro is like.
What does it mean to be accepted as a Lambda Literary fellow?
I’ve written several essays on what it means to be queer and southern for Autostraddle and CherryGrrl, and I have poems in Off the Rocks 16 and Lavender Review. I have a full list of publication credits on my website, http://flavors.me/sarah.
Currently, I’m working on a memoir on my experiences as a queer Latina serving in a Mexican restaurant.
