A Word From

Sara Pennypacker

“In twenty-five years of writing for kids, nothing has helped me more than my residencies at the VCCA, where I have been given the time, the space, the support, and the inspiration to produce my best work. It’s a thrill to be able to offer the same opportunity to others who illuminate the paths of kids with their art.”
