Writer2Writer Alumni Exchange

Writer2Writer is a tool VCFA offers to assist you in post graduation writing endeavors by setting up a pairing/packet system with you and other alumni.

Many of us know what it is to write alone for years. To have your friends and family feign interest and literary magazines send itty bitty rejection letters. Sometimes knowing there is someone out in the world willing to take your work seriously makes all the difference.

Writing is a hard road and we hope sharing your work with fellow alumni will improve your work. While writing on your own can be great and also enriching; it is often good to have a person in your corner saying, “Where the heck is your packet? I don’t care if you have tooth decay! Get crackin’!”

Frankly, if all you get out of this peer exchange is writing more, then it is a success. We also hope you will learn more about how to respond to another writer’s work—which is essential training for a writer.

But let us state this upfront: Writer2Writer is not meant to be a casual thing: we want people to participate who are motivated and committed to writing and responding to others over an entire semester.

If that all sounds good to you, please sign up!
