Maybe they're just overloaded. That's a good thing, isn't it??

They already have an equivalent school for writing for adults: Long Ridge Writers' Group.

On their website, they say, "Thank you for your interest in our writing program. We are not accepting or evaluating new Writing Aptitude Tests at this point. Our school is operating at our capacity and we are focusing on training our existing students. We are not enrolling new students at this time. We invite you to check back periodically for updates to this policy." (Which is exactly the same thing the ICL site says.)

 Cheesy  I thought that'd get her attention.


SPECULATION ALERT!

Maybe they are considering dropping the "Childrens" in their name and expanding their classes to cater to those would-be authors who want to write for adults.

Dumpling isn't going anywhere. Just get that thought right outta your head.

Nanlisa, was that your answer from student services? Sound like they're not ready to be more specific, in any case.

How about a bribe of some sort?

But.....but that means we have to GIVE her something, dunnit?   I ain't givin' her my squirrels. And don't even suggest Ursala.   

The only thing of value I can think of are Kate's ZBs.  Or...OR MAYBE DUMPLING!

Maybe we could give her Dumpling!

I stand corrected. ICL is not accepting any new and returning students at this time. They don't know how long this will be.

Speaking of pickle juice...

I need to share a recipe on here for dill pickle soup. I haven't tried it, but it sounds good!

NEED?   No!  MUST!!

I sent an email over to Student Services today. I certainly hope that they don't close. This is the best school to learn how to be a published writer, and I want to continue working with them.

I may come back in July to finish my adult course. Besides my SSDI, I'll also get my rent rebate from the state of Pennsylvania. I've gotten as far as Assignment 7 in my adult course,  but I also hot as far as Assignment 3 in children's. I might be able to pay off my adult course. But my children's course may still have to wait until I get me another job. I have been working with this market research firm here in Philly on and off for the last five years.  This is temporary contract work and they can't guarantee stable employment. They offered my neighbor s job there, but she turned it down. She's a single mother and sheneeded something much steadier. I even had to turn down pnr job back in October because of the threat of a transit strike here in Philly. I also had three other jobs that didn't work out. I have not been steadily employed in the last four years. That is why I had to drop out.

I will check back with them again in July just to see if they're accepting new and returning students. I certainly hope that it happens.
