The right idea

A.M. Burns done got the right idea. Or so it seems to me, judging by the blog.

Entitled The Conceit, A.M. Burns's blog is built around the following notion:
Can creative writing be taught? That depends on what kind of writing matters to you. University cirriculums direct students toward literary fiction. If that's not your cup of tea, then you don't need a University to learn to write well.
Seems good to me. And the 19 January post on declining literacy and dying novels says it all.
