Our goal is to use VCFA’s powerful alumnx network to create broader, more equitable access to writing instruction for kids—and, over the long term, to foster a more diverse community of authors. We have worked with thousands of kids since we started out in 2015, and there’s a lot more magic to come!

Our ongoing work includes:

  • Building partnerships across New England, collaborating with nonprofits that share our mission of providing excellent programming for diverse young writers.
  • Providing engaging, in-depth creative writing programs to hundreds of children each year.
  • Supporting and inspiring our national network of alumnx authors to provide quality writing instruction to underserved children in their own regions.
  • Providing a network of support for aspiring writers.
