VCCA in France

What could be better than a residency at the wonderful arts colony, Virginia Center for the Creative Arts (VCCA)? Perhaps only this, the chance to go off to France and study writing with a VCCA Fellow!

Narrative Workshop
September 19-25, 2008
Bruce Bauman, writing professor and author of the acclaimed novel And The Word Was, leads this intensive workshop for writers of fiction and non-fiction.

"I began writing my memoir in Bruce's UCLA class, and thanks to his guidance and inspiration, I am now publishing my book with St Martin's Press. I owe my new life as an author to him."
- Alison Singh Gee, The Peacock Cries for Rain

Classes are held in Le Moulin à Nef, the VCCA's historic studio center in the charming medieval village of Auvillar, located in the Gascony region of France, between Toulouse and Bordeaux. The workshops are open to writers of all levels and include much one-on-one time with the instructors. Fine dining and European-style accommodations are included in the package.
