Anyone read this?
« on: January 24, 2012, 09:19:28 AM »
there is a lot of reviews of this in the press at the moment? Anyone else read the articles about it or indeed read the book?

I think the article poses interesting questions and points for further discussion, for example:"" So why do they struggle to produce 20 famous names from the last 40 years? And why donít UEA alumni dominate contemporary British writing?""

What do you think?

Just a well-read punk peasant

The campus is too far away from the city.

I thought creative writing programs were there to train up future creative writing teachers, not important or popular authors.  :o
