Good Bye Launch Pad, Hello WILD THINGS!

Posted by Amanda West Lewis on Wed, Jun 13, 2018 @ 15:06 PM

Dear Launch Pad Readers: 

Thank you so much for reading up on all the wonderful new releases from the MFA in Writing for Children & Young Adults program at VCFA.  Please note that as of June 30, 2018 The Launch Pad content will now appear an our new program blog, Wild Things.

Wild Things will continue to feature interviews and new releases, and will add speaking engagements, new awards, and current happenings in the WCYA world. The new site will give a wider view into the VCFA community, recognizing the other achievements of our alumni, students, and faculty in the field of children’s literature as teachers, editors, agents, retreat organizers, and more.  There’s much to share!

 Please come join us on the new site and on our new social media pages:

· Facebook

· Twitter

· Instagram

 We want to sincerely thank the present and past contributing members of the Launch Pad team. This fabulous site was the brainchild of Tami Lewis Brown, Trent Reedy, and Adi Rule. Adi and Tami also brought on Lisa Doan, Robin Herrera, Sarah Blake Johnson, and Amanda West Lewis who have done a fantastic job researching VCFA writers’ new publications and interviewing authors. These volunteers have created rich and engaging content for the Launch Pad for several years, and we are delighted that many of them will continue covering new releases on the Wild Things blog.
