Lesley's MFA in Creative Writing program welcomes community members to experience the work of faculty members in a series of readings January 4-9
Tuesday, January 01, 2013
Students visit Lesley’s Cambridge campus twice a year, at the beginning of each semester, to spend nine days working on their writing with fellow students and faculty advisors.
All events will be held on Lesley’s Doble Campus in Marran Theater, 36 Mellen Street, Cambridge. The series is free and open to the public.
The Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing is offered in a low-residency format that allows students, with the oversight of a faculty mentor, to design their own programs of study concentrating in one of five genres: Fiction, Nonfiction, Poetry, Writing for Stage and Screen, and Writing for Young People.
