Hello, I am on vacation! The Writing will return next week. In the meantime, here are two threads I have noted in the recent past on getting a writing education outside of an MFA. Meant for poets but useful for all.
A new series for talk, craft, and teaching each other.
Today is the last edition of The Writing. Starting next week, I am releasing, instead, one more letter a month just for paid subscribers like you.
There was a point in time that I assumed that writing was just one job: to get the thoughts down and out. But as so many reader letters reflect here at The Reading, art is at least two jobs. The first is to resist; the second is to make.
