There are still spaces available for the Clockhouse Writers’ Conference & Retreat, so please do visit the CWC website for registration materials if you’re thinking of joining us!
The conference occurs during the MFAW-VT residency and includes solitary time for writing; works-in-progress sessions to critique each other’s work; workshops run by you, our creative participants; evening readings and common-room gatherings; and the unveiling of the new issue of Clockhouse, our alumni-run, national literary journal. We also join the MFAW program for the presentation and Q&A of their visiting professional and for the reading of the Visiting Writer. (This year’s visitors are writer Nick Flynn and literary agent Samantha Shea.) What’s a bit more intangible–but equally at the heart of the week–is just what we all remember about our Goddard MFA experience: The impromptu and seemingly around-the-clock sharing of writing, laughter, and more writing.
