Faculty and alumni of the MFA in Writing for Children & Young Adults (WCYA) share their thoughts about why this program is essential to writers who want a rich and dynamic writing life.
Read what alumni and faculty have to say:
- "VCFA is the only place I know where people care so much about children’s books that they are still discussing them at 2:00 a.m."
- "VCFA is sitting in one of those darkened rooms, listening to a reading, and plunging into the deep despair of knowing that I will never, ever be able to write anything anywhere near that wonderful. And then thinking, 'But… wait. If she can do it, maybe I can too. What if I tried just a bit harder? What if I pushed my talent just a bit more?'"
- "The program equipped me with the tools and the support to take each story I write as far as it can go and to start thinking of myself as a writer. It was one of the best decisions I ever made."
