VCFA Winter Residency & Cynsational Return

By Cynthia Leitich Smith

Welcome back to Cynsations! I’ll be posting sporadically until I’m up to speed for 2015.

It’s been a busy winter, highlighted by teaching at the winter residency of the Vermont College of Fine Arts MFA program in Writing for Children and Young Adults and speaking at ALA Midwinter in Chicago. Here a peek from VCFA:

  1. Every time I hear about this school, I salivate. That cake for Katherine looks amazing (guessing you got to hang with her a bit? 😀 ) This looks like a wonderful time had for you and everyone there. I know someone who just graduated and am so happy for her. Thanks so much for sharing these special pics 🙂

  2. Oh, my gosh, I'm heading over from Los Angeles for my for my first residency in a on January 8th and am so excited and nervous, but these photos make it look relaxed and fun!
