Dear Christina V. Solomon
Executive Assistant of Academic Affairs,
I want to take this opportunity to thank you, and to Elaine Maldonado and Celia Baez for all their support in making this grant possible for my sabbatical multimedia poetry project throughout the year of 2015. Also, to professor Pilar Blanco who helped me with great ideas while reviewing the proposal.
I had the opportunity to travel to different coasts in Mexico and also to Mexico City. In these places I did research and started preparing the materials for a blog and a website. As you can see on my new webpage, madelinemillan.com (under construction), the picture of the whale belongs to one of the many photos that 1 took for this multimedia project. All the photos and poems can't be uploaded yet. They have to remain unpublished as I am sending them to literary contests.
Again, thank you for your ongoing support, Madeline Millan, Ph.D
