Saw this article and wanted to pass it on:

Things I Can Say About MFA Writing Programs Now That I No Longer Teach in One

                                                 by Ryan Boudinot

I love a good debate and this article sparked one on The Passive Voice. I’m amazed that I managed to stay out of the comments and just lurk. Many of my Passive Voice friends jumped in and I thought I’d link to it here as there is a lot of good information in the comments.

I thought it was a good article and agreed with the majority of what the author had to say minus one glaring point. With that said I will call attention to the ageism in the original post.

I self-published in my forties and am doing well. Others are far older. Check out John Ellsworth. Here is a man in his seventies who is doing very well. John is one of many examples of people finding success at this game despite a system that tried to label them as too old. He blows the agism meme out of the water for all of us, present and future.

I’ll say it again.
