    I live in New York and am required to have a masters within a certain number of years.I would love to get a masters in children's literature. With my living situation and work schedule it would need to be online. Any recommendations?

    Not totally online, but worth checking out since you're not too far away: the MFA in Writing for Children & Young Adults Program at Vermont College of Fine Arts. Two 10-day residencies required per year, the rest is distance.

    Disclosure: I did my M.A. at the old Vermont College, then a part of Norwich University. V.C. was bought by The Union Institute, which ditched it a few years later. V.C.F.A. was formed as a new institution on the old V.C. campus, is independent of all other schools, and is regionally accredited on its own.

    The distinction is worth making. An MFA with a concentration in Children's Literature is markedly different than an MA program in Children's Lit. There are quite a number of MA programs in Children's Lit but as far as I can tell, not even one of them is online/DL.
