Poetry off the Shelf: Ellen Bryant Voigt


Ellen Bryant Voigt was a founder of the Goddard College low-residency MFA program, the first MFA program of its kind, and has taught at Iowa Wesleyan College and MIT. She served as Poet Laureate of Vermont for four years. She has received grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Guggenheim Foundation, and in 2015 she was awarded a MacArthur Fellowship. Her poems often traverse the worlds of motherhood, the rural South, family, and music.

In collaboration with the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation in honor of the 35th anniversary of the MacArthur Fellows Program, which recognizes exceptionally creative people who inspire us all.
