Learn more about Fleur’s writing at her website. She is also a communications consultant for a number of different clients, responsible for website content development, public relations, and marketing strategies."When I started looking at graduate schools, I had no idea AULA had a social justice element to its MFA program. I originally researched it because of location. Once I learned about the entire program, however, I was sold. The program really solidified my belief that I was given this ability in order to enlighten and educate others. And if I don't use it for that purpose, I'm not fulfilling my responsibility as a writer."
