Right for You. Write for the World.
Nurture YOUR Radical Imagination at Goddard. The first low residency MFA in Creative Writing. Eight day intensive residencies start your semester. Then work intensively with your advisor. Your program is made for you, because you are the one who makes it.
The time to raise your voice is now.
COVID 19 UPDATE
Our one-on-one live mentorship is real, active, urgent and engaged: it is not “online learning,” rather, it is unbounded by time and space. We are still here, and still coming together (though we are preparing a new virtual intensive next semester if needed). If you want to engage in a community of writers, NOW is the time.
THE LATEST ON THE BLOG
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.”
“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.”
