GODDARD HONORS YOUR VOICE, YOUR VISION, YOUR GOALS AND YOUR LIFE. OUR AWARD-WINNING FACULTY IS HERE TO HELP YOU DEVELOP THE SKILLS YOU NEED TO CREATE THE PROJECT YOU CAME TO WRITE. OUR RESIDENCIES GIVE YOU THE FREEDOM TO EXPERIMENT OR DIVE DEEPLY INTO YOUR GENRE. NO LECTURES, NO REQUIRED TRACKS, NO ONE ELSE’S CANON.
Goddard’s model is ideal for people with commitments to family or work who choose to hone their writing skills at the same time. The Goddard MFA program enables you to tailor your study to any of a wide variety of genres: poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, graphic novel, and hybrid forms, and to learn from a diverse faculty of published authors. Goddard also offers playwriting, screenwriting, TV writing, and libretto writing from our Vermont campus, through one-on-one mentorship from working writers in the TV, theatre, film, and opera fields.
Goddard’s program takes place on two coasts: Port Townsend, WA in February and July, and Plainfield, VT in January and July.
