The Vermont Adventure – day eight


Pictured above is the room where I and ten other students workshop our pieces with William Alexander and Sharon Darrow. Yes, it is powerful.


This was without reservation the most beautiful day in Montpelier so far; it was cool with low humidity.

It has been said on blogs that VCFA is the Harvard of children’s and YA literature. I have to say that only a fool would argue. The faculty is second to none, and every single day is edifying.

Well, off to a dance party.
