Best wishes to the faculty, administrators, students and staff of the M.F.A. in Writing for Children and Young Adults at Vermont College of Fine Arts as you gather over the next several days for the winter 2012 residency in Montpelier.

Hooray for visiting speakers Marla Frazee and Libba Bray!

Congratulations to new visiting faculty members April Lurie and Matt de la Peña!

Welcome to the first semester students! Good luck to the graduating class on your readings and lectures! Stay warm, have fun, learn, grow, share, and dance like Snoopy!

My thoughts are with you all!

Thank you Cyn! We're at the final day of a fabulous, energizing (and exhausting) residency--how in the world can 10 days possibly be both at the same time? Writing this during my hour and a half down time right before graduation. We MISS you!

So glad it's been such an amazing experience, Uma, though I'd expect no less. My cheers to the graduates and love to all! MISS you too!
