Big News!

I have some exciting news to share with you all! It's obvious from the breadth of this blog that I am totally, completely, irrevocably in love with YA. I've known for a very long time that I've wanted to work with YA books in some capacity when I "grow up" and working at my local indie bookstore while in college has been a lot of fun. Even though I'll be graduating from college in May and I'm still not completely sold on the whole concept of growing up, I have been lucky enough to figure out within the past few years what I'm passionate about, and that's writing.

To that end, I'm very excited to announce that I've been accepted to Vermont College of Fine Arts to study Creative Writing for Children and Young Adults! This is an awesome program, and I've heard nothing but good things from numerous alumni I've spoken with. I am so excited to begin in July!

So, what does that mean for this blog? Hopefully not too many changes, and if so, I think they'll be good ones. I have no intention of giving up the blog, and I think that being a part of the VCFA community will only enhance my blog writing! I'm excited to continue blogging and reading and writing, and sharing all that I'll learn with everyone!

Thanks for being such wonderful readers!

Meanwhile, I'm graduating too and trying to pick a grad school! Look at us, being all grown-up! I remember back when we first met and had no idea what to do next!

Congratulations! You're lucky to have found a school that fits your dreams so perfectly. My university sure doesn't have a writing program specific to children and young adults.

Happy travels, and I sincerely hope you keep blogging throughout them!
