The count down is on!

24 days until I leave to start the Picture Book Semester at Vermont College of Fine Arts (VCFA)! What did I do to get this far?
1) Filled out the online application form for VCFA, Wrote, Edited, and Sent in 1 Personal essay, 1 Critical essay,and 2 Picture Book Manuscripts, along with 2 letters of recommendation and $75us
2) Enlisted love/support of family and friends...
3) Borrowed $10 000 from my RRSP for the Canadian Life Long Learning Program (yes, you can do that!)
It was a lot of prep work but I have a feeling it will look like child's play next to the work load I'm in for at VCFA!


  1. Can't wait to read about the adventure. So excited for you!

  2. Thanks Dierdre. Hope my blog will be insightful!

  3. I envy you, Steph. It will be a lot of work, but SO exciting at the same time.
