Founded in 2007 Noepe was originally housed in the Point Way Inn in Edgartown on the island of Martha’s Vineyard. It was named one of the top 20 residency programs and provided time and space for over 300 writers. Noepe is now located on the beautiful campus of Featherstone Center for the Arts in Oak Bluffs, and directed by author Mathea Morais. Noepe offers open writing hours to anyone wishing for a quiet space to write and workshops taught by some of the world’s finest teachers and writers.
Summer 2019 hosted workshops and readings by Poet Laureate Billy Collins, Naomi Jackson, Bret Anthony Johnston and Justen Ahren.
The website, logo and promotional materials were created by Bella Morais in the spring of 2019.
