Founded in 1863, Goddard College is recognized for innovation in education. Its mission is to advance the theory and practice of learning by undertaking new experiments based upon the ideals of democracy and the principles of progressive education asserted by John Dewey. At Goddard, students are regarded as unique individuals who will take charge of their learning and collaborate with other students, staff, and faculty to build a strong community. Goddard encourages students to become creative, passionate, lifelong learners, working and living with an earnest concern for others and the welfare of the Earth
In partnership with Centrum, Goddard offers a low-residency MFA in Creative Writing at Fort Worden. Goddard College’s low-residency programs are committed to self-directed education. In keeping with this commitment, your needs, goals, and passions as a writer determine your course of study in the MFA in Creative Writing Program. Students may choose to work in the areas of poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, memoir, playwriting, screenwriting, or cross genre. We welcome and encourage work in more than one genre, and we urge you to experiment with new kinds of writing and push your limits.
