TO ORDER - CLICK ON BOOK

Over a year in the making, this remarkable anthology is a labor of love by VCCA Fellows and the Fellows' Council to celebrate VCCA's 40th anniversary.

Edited by Margaret B. Ingraham and Andrea Carter Brown, Entering the Real World: VCCA Poets on Mt. San Angelo contains over sixty previously published poems by our Fellows, all written about or inspired by their residencies here. The poets are from throughout the United States, around the world—and across the decades.

Virginia Poet Laureate Kelly Cherry calls it: ". . .this splendid, intriguing anthology . . ."

Editor Margaret B. Ingraham writes: "This anthology is at once a work of literary merit, a celebratory offering, and an historical record of a hallowed place."
