MFA Faculty Member Molly Gloss Discusses the Craft of Writing at

Molly GlossMFA faculty member and author Molly Gloss talked about writing with a former student at The Q&A touches on genres, opening sentences, a sense of place and grief.

A sample:

"As a reader, I’m especially drawn to stories with characters the writer seems to love, even when they are not doing loveable things. And in my own writing, it’s much the same. I try to be generous to my characters, even the ones I know I wouldn’t like if we met in real life."

Gloss's collection of short stories, Unforeseen, was published this summer.
