Promo for this book reads: “Writers write.  But what do they do for money?”

Oh, boy. We’ve talked about how an MFA may figure into your plans to write or teach writing in future.  I did not attend grad school for Creative Writing, so I can only speak from the NYC side.  But here is a review in The New York Times by Dwight Garner of a book that gives the subject a thorough airing.  It’s by Chad Harbach, novelist and editor of the magazine n + 1.  Harbach’s original 2009 essay began his public discussion of the subject. The book adds many other voices.  They all know what they are talking about.  Several disagree.  Have a look.
