It is not my scheduled day to post on Write At Your Own Risk but hey! This is enough reason to shout out. Look at the National Book Awards finalist announcements! Just look–one faculty finalist and two-count-em-two finalists who are VCFA grads from our own MFA program in Writing for Children and Young Adults. Congratulations, Franny Billingsley, Lauren Myracle and Debby Edwardson!

  5. When I first read the news last week, it made me feel humbled to have received an MFA from VCFA. But knowing the work and talented faculty, I"m hardly surprised to see so many VC standouts. So happy and excited for Franny, Lauren and Debby. Congratulations!
