VCCA Sara Pennypacker Fellowship for Child-Focused Writers


Virginia Center for the Creative Arts (Amherst, VA)

VCCA is a working retreat for exceptional national and international artists, writers, and composers.

For anywhere from two weeks to two months, they come here for intense periods of work, free from the distractions of day-to-day life. Sequestered in the rolling foothills of Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains, they are furnished with private studios, private bedrooms and three prepared meals a day. They can work in concentrated solitude, then re-energize in the company of two dozen other artists, writers and composers.
