I’m excited to share that the Novel Retreat at the Vermont College of Fine Arts in Montpelier, Vermont–held in May 2015–is now open for applications. If you’re a prose writer working in the long form (AKA the novel), a novelist already, or a hope-to-be-novelist, this is the retreat for you.
I’ll be attending this year, both as a participant and as Director Connie May Fowler’s graduate assistant. I’m already so excited to be back in Montpelier (where I earned my MFA in Writing from VCFA) that I can barely stand it. This Novel Retreat boasts some truly phenomenal faculty–I’ve had the distinct pleasure of working with both Connie May Fowler and Clint McCown before, and they are two of the many reasons I’ve decided to attend.
Them, a lovely writing community, Montpelier in May, and hours of uninterrupted writing time. I repeat: HOURS OF UNINTERRUPTED WRITING TIME. Shhh… listen. Can you hear the angels rejoicing?
I do hope you’ll consider attending, too. For more information, click here. And if you’d like to ask me any questions about VCFA, the faculty, etc, I’ll be happy to share my experiences.
