    “… teaches fiction writing …” I always am astonished how US Americans end up making everything “teachable”, even “creativity” in a sense. I believe it was Asimov who said “any technology advanced enough is indistinguishable from magic”. Somehow when I first heard of creative writing being taught I thought “there goes the magic” but so far it has only increased the (quality of) output without taking away from the appeal of the “classics”.

      Thanks for your comment Maureen. We have followed the debate about the teachability of creativity as well. ultimately, it seems like practice is most important with any skill, including writing.

      We love that some students end up finding their passion for writing while taking classes on creative writing. We agree, the quality of creative writing has certainly increased, and we hope to continue to see more!
