The application for the fellowship I'm applying for wants, "the names, addresses and telephone number of two people clearly competent to discuss you as a writer and as a person and to judge your qualifications for the Fellowship."
I know many people who could discuss me asa a person, a few who might discuss me as a writer. None who could do both!
THen it says, "Do not have your college or graduate school placement office send the conventional dossier. " UGH! I'm 48, so even if I had attended college, those people wouldn't be doing me any good now. THat sentence just scares me because now I feel like I'm up against a bunch of intellectuals, instead of just people. (I'm still doing it, but I could use more confidence!)
I have a month. What would YOU do??? WHo would you ask?
