  3. And I'm in. Vermont college of fine arts. What a journey to even get here. So much support on this forum. Thank you. Be well. Keep writing.
  4. Sorry fella. Big hug.
  5. Call them? Go for a walk? Write it out.
  6. Montpelier, VT. Any suggestions on housing? Hikes? Neighborhood cafes? I'll be a graduate student with 2 dogs and a cat called Stevie. 😃
  7. I'm still waiting on VCFA. Well, I'm on holiday but keep checking. They're waiting on one of my references still. At least they didn't just say no, right?
  8. Oh, thanks. I had no idea about that. Just in case...
  9. I can't ask my references for more emails! I'll wait and see on Vermont and call it a day at that. I'll have to nurture more professional friends for references another year.

  12. Thanks for thinking of me, I'm more of a nonfiction/ fiction writer though. I"m going ahead with VCFA application and see what happens. There's hope though, right?
  13. Patersons? Petersons? A scholarship website.
  14. No direct experience but I applied to VCFA as they said they were still taking applications. I like the faculty and location better plus it has a great reputation.
  15. Well, I'm not going to grad school. Oh well. Good luck everyone. It's been a learning experience!
