Thought For The Day

Filed under: — site admin @ 9:48 PM UTC

Critical Mass and Our Girl in Chicago both link to an amusing attack on writers’ workshops. I couldn’t help thinking of one of Kingsley Amis’ apophthegms:

In searching the web for the exact phrasing, I found that I had forgotten the sequel:

After Youth, that is.

Of course there’s nothing wrong with the sort of workshop that contains power tools or more primitive equivalents.
