Nurture YOUR Radical Imagination at Goddard. The first low residency MFA in Creative Writing. The time to raise your voice is now.
“Goddard’s emphasis on diversity and individuality really appealed to me…I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted out of an MFA program: self-directed learning that would allow me to take risks and follow hunches, and a safe environment in which I could make the mistakes we all need to endure if we are going to learn.”MATTHEW QUICK
I yearned for creative freedom…My advisors at Goddard helped tailor my studies to my unique needs and interests, while at the same time stretching me beyond where I might have wandered on my own.”MARY JOHNSON
