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. We offer 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.

Moving forward, we hope bring back our award winning residency program. Additionally, we hope to make our program more accessible to working writers by offering weekend workshops, courses in the business of writing and publishing and short term residencies.
