Vermont College MFA Program 2007 Winter Residency

This winter, I’m taking a leave of absence from my teaching at the Vermont College MFA program in Writing for Children and Young Adults to focus on my own fiction.

I’d like to send my best wishes to the students, graduate assistants, faculty, and VC MFA administration as well as a boisterous cheer to the graduating class!
