Faculty Directory

Students come from around the country to work closely with VCFA's award-winning faculty. Diverse and accomplished, VCFA's faculty are working professionals who provide one-on-one mentorship, helping students to refine their craft, create a body of work, and develop a distinctive artistic vision.

Faculty maintain their own creative practice, distinguishing themselves as Pulitzer Prize finalists, National Book Award winners, Newbery Medalists, and award-winning designers, filmmakers, teachers, critics, and consultants.

"What VCFA gives a writer is that crucial combination of solitude and community, the excitement and intensity of the residency, then the focused ongoing dialogue with a mentor. What a gift–to know there's someone on the other end of the line! It's the best of both worlds–the modern classroom and the age-old experience of apprenticeship–a serious, personal and thrilling way to learn." - Betsy Sholl, Faculty, MFA in Writing faculty
