Every kid has a story.

The VCFA Young Writers Network connects talented authors with underserved kids across New England. Founded by alumni of the Vermont College of Fine Arts Writing for Children & Young Adults Program, our mission is to bring the magic of Vermont College to the young people most likely to benefit from author visits or existing creative writing programs.

We’re building a more diverse next generation of writers.  

Through intensive, multi-day creative writing programs led by professional writers, we inspire young writers to discover their voices, develop their craft, and explore future careers in writing.

We’ve worked with over 1,000 young writers in Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Maine in the last two years. Learn more about where we’re headed and where we’ve been.
