Looking for advice: graduating this May

Hi! My name is Milena Williamson, and I will graduate this May.  I'm majoring in English and creative writing. I have experience working in arts nonprofits and teaching.  I'm seeking a position or internship that will engage my love of literature and poetry.   If you are an educator or advocator of the arts, I'd like to talk to you.  I'm also interested in exploring related fields such as communications, library work, and mentorship programs. I would love to hear from you.  How did you find your job?  What do you like about your current position?  What advice do you have for someone who is starting out? Thanks! I'm looking forward to hearing from you.

Hosting Obie In New England

Hi Obies, my name is Tony Moaton, and I am a graduating senior who will be spending the second half of his Spring Break (Thursday, March 23 to Sunday, March 26) traveling around New England, specifically Boston, Providence, New York, and New Haven. I will be moving to Connecticut in June, and I wanted to see what it's like to live in New England as well as visit various grad schools in the area. I wanted to see if there was anyone in any of these areas who would feel comfortable with me staying with them, even if just for a day/night? I would truly appreciate whatever anyone can offer! Thanks, Tony
