Creative Writhing Course

At MobyLives, Elizabeth Clementson cuts MFAs down to size:

“Many of the world’s greatest novels would have never made it through the workshop process.

Or Gertrude Stein being told, “Gertrude, The Making of Americans, is inaccessible. You need to cut the fat out and rework these sentences.”
