Lecture #1 Sharon Darrow - discussed teaching writing and more specifically how the process is frameworked at VCFA. I walked away with a better understanding and appreciation for VCFA's approach. As well, I can see why the freedom inherent in this approach makes me both nervous and excited at the same time.
Workshoped fellow student's picture book stories - it is wonderful to hear other people's pt of view and interpretations.
Grad Lecture #1 - This was a fab grad lecture on practical strategies for depicting character emotion! It was filled with dos and don'ts (my favorite!)
Did you know VCFA offers scholarships? After your first semester, you can submit to any one of the following categories: picture book, middle grade, YA, and/or critical thesis.
Kid Literary Theory discussion continued over dinner with Tobin Anderson. I had to skip the readings tonight - too tired!!
