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.
