No, I'm not thinking about trying to get a graduate school to accept me any longer. If I don't think I can tolerate a week-long writers' conference, how could I even consider a graduate program? Come on, they last much, much longer than a week, right? Nobody offers a degree after three hours, which is my time limit for just about everything.
What I am doing is directing you to a Finding Wonderland post on the subject of graduate writing programs, which was inspired by Show or Tell: Should Creative Writing Be Taught? in The New Yorker.
I really did read the whole thing last night. It took a long time, but not three hours, so that's okay.
