WCYA Alumni Mini-Residency

The Alumni Mini-Residency, a three-day conference for WCYA alumni focusing on craft and publication, connection and community, will take place from November 15-17, 2019. 

The AMR offers an opportunity for alums to participate in workshops led by VCFA faculty members, enjoy lectures and panel discussions, and participate in alumni readings. In addition, alums can engage with editors, agents, and/or publicists—influential individuals who ultimately define a writer’s career.

Master Classes, Faculty, and Guests will be announced soon!

Registration, Travel, and Housing 

Details regarding fees will be posted in late February. Registration will open in March 2019.

The Mini-Residency will be comprised of two and a half days full of events, running from Friday morning until noon on Sunday. Alumni may plan to arrive on Thursday, November 14, and depart on the afternoon of Sunday, November 17.

On campus room and board will be available. The fee includes dorm accommodations (double or single occupancy) for Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. Meals are included from opening continental breakfast reception on Friday through Sunday lunch, with an optional Thursday night dinner for an additional cost.

Please note: Children and pets are not permitted to stay in the dorms. Thanks for your understanding.
