The power of creative writing is all in the hands of the author. Authors, through their writings, can express their truth in beautifully diverse ways. You are the creator of mental images, emotional impressions, whole new worlds crafted by words.I myself am an artist and writer. Before my mother passed away, I illustrated a children’s book she wrote after obtaining another college degree in creative writing at the age of 73 from Metro State University in St. Paul, Minnesota. As a writer, as a creator, the world is yours.
In loving memory of my mother Patricia Lea Olson and to encourage other students to reach their full potential in creative writing, this scholarship fund will go towards the Patricia Lea Olson Creative Writing Scholarship, which will help a creative writing student on their journey to share their words with the world.
