Heading for VCCA on Monday!

Well, it’s almost time for me to go to VCCA, and I’m very excited! Here’s my address and contact info  for while I’m there (1/10-1/25).  I will have my own postal maibox there, and will also have my netbook & cell phone—and the facility is wireless. However, I don’t intend to be on-line nearly as much; I am really looking forward to working on several writing projects, including one involving my great-great-grandmother’s journal from 1890 in Utica, NY.

Studio Barn

Fellows at the VCCA work in their own private studios, most of which are located in a renovated Normandy style barn built in the 1930s. All studios are air-conditioned and heated. There is no smoking in the barn or cottage . The entire campus of VCCA is a non-smoking area. Ten studios in the barn are dedicated to writers, plus there are two more studios with private bedrooms in a newly renovated cottage.

Elizabeth Coles Langhorne Residence for Fellows

Named for founder Elizabeth Langhorne, the VCCA Fellows Residence houses bedrooms, dining facilities, kitchens, a library, laundry facilities, and recreation rooms. Each bedroom is private with a private sink and semi-private bath. Sliding glass doors open onto vistas of rolling pastures and the Blue Ridge Mountains.

The living room has a large fireplace and grand piano. An adjoining room has a television with satellite reception. The library, with its hardy collection of books and journals, is also equipped with a high-speed wireless connection and a computer for checking email and a variety of audio equipment. The residence is a five-minute walk from the studio barn. There is no smoking in the Fellows’ Residence.
