Join esteemed author Rachel Kadish for a free fiction craft seminar designed to demonstrate how students receive craft and technique instruction in the Lesley University MFA in Creative Writing Program. Kadish’s seminar will explore how good character development sets plots in motion, commandeers readers’ loyalty, and draws the reader into experiences and emotions otherwise inaccessible. It will explore ways to let your characters surprise, delight, disturb....and lead the reader, one sentence at a time, into the terrains of human experience we find richest and most compelling.
Following Kadish’s seminar, participants will have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with Program Director Stephen Haven to discuss the Lesley MFA in Creative Writing program. Sign up for an optional 15-minute meeting time (between 12-3pm) with Director Haven during the registration process with Beth Tallett.
