Do You Have Your Copy of CLOCKWORKS?

CLOCKWORKS Winter/Fall 2015
CLOCKWORKS Winter/Fall 2015

The current issue of Clockworks marks the 30th anniversary of the magazine that began as The Goddard Record.  As former director of alumni relations and Clockworks editor Sarah Hooker, details the record of magazine’s thirty years,
looking through the large notebook of archived issues is like time travel; it gives one a capsulized sense of all that has happened at Goddard in three decades, which is a great deal. Throughout major upheavals  and transitions, from Goddard V to the closing of the Residential Program, to Mark Schulman’s Third Century Plan and new academic programs, Clockworks has chronicled the ongoing story of Goddard and its people.
This issue of Clockworks continues that chronicling, with articles on radio station WGDR’s new website, the new Goddard’s MFAW/PEN Center USA partnership that provides emerging writers with a $10,000 scholarship, and notes about work by the following MFAW alums:

Danita Berg (MFAW ’07)

Susan Deer Cloud (MFAW ’11)

Gregory Comer (MFAW ’12)

Joseph Cosentino (MFAW ’94)

Johanna DeBiase (MFAW ’04)
