West Texas A&M University has launched a crowdfunding site to help enhance my Travel Writing Study Abroad course in South Korea. This effort is all about the students and will provide them with some additional opportunities beyond the normal costs of the trip. If you're inclined to help or would rather share this so others can see it, I would appreciate it. Many thanks!
