Writers sometimes wonder if they should get a Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Creative Writing: is it worth it? Will it make them better writers? Lead to jobs in the industry? Give them valuable insider connections?
Over at Three Guys One Book, Joseph Rakowski interviews Jennifer duBois
on the subject. It's a good interview if you've been considering an
MFA. But I also love this statement of duBois's at the very end, which
can apply to so many more issues and questions beyond the scope of the
"... other people’s choices or lives are not
necessarily a rebuke to our own—-they may, in fact, have nothing to do
with us at all."
