VCFA Novel Retreat

Hey. Here's a thing. I'm pleased to announce that next May I'll be one of the faculty members of the Novel Retreat hosted by the Vermont College of Fine Arts.

Here's some of what they say about it:

"In keeping with its nationally recognized commitment to the literary arts, in May 2015, the College will host its second annual VCFA Novel Retreat. Readings, presentations, and faculty mentorships in which full-length manuscript critiques are available, are the centerpieces of this special week devoted solely to full immersion novel writing. It is specifically designed to provide participants with concentrated blocks of writing time in an environment that fosters and sustains emerging novelists."

It's a week-long event, with what looks like a terrific combination of writing and reading and short talks etc. But it's a retreat, so it's not all work! Sounds like great fun. The faculty looks terrific as well (by which I mean the other faculty - I'm just me): Connie May Fowler and Laurie Alberts and Clint McCown. I'm personally pleased to be hanging out with Clint again; we used to teach together at the Stonecoast MFA Program (where I still do teach, of course). Bios of everyone are here.

 Registration starts in September and the retreat dates are: May 19 - 25, 2015.

Interested? How's the novel coming along? What shape will it be in by next spring? Need incentive to get to work? Here it is!

Also, do note that part of the inclusion of me as a faculty member is to mix in a writer familiar with genre writing. Something to consider...
