Deb is a proud 2008 graduate of the VCFA Writing for Children and Young Adults program - a life-changing experience, indeed.

Annually, the Vermont College of Fine Arts welcomes alumni back to participate in an Alumni Mini-Residency (affectionately known as the AMR.) Deb serves as the AMR Coordinator, working closely with the VCFA Administration to offer former students career boosting opportunities like no other.

Along with plenty of time to reconnect with fellow alums, AMR programming consists of a Master Class led by one of the industry’s finest writers, workshops led by VCFA faculty members, one-on-one sessions with the top agents, editors and publicists in the business, lectures, panels, faculty and alumni readings, fantastic food and memorable weekend of great fun.
