I have only been here for 2 days and somehow over 150 of you followed me lol. Hi!! Welcome and thanks for the follow 👋I am figuring out what I am doing here but I like how cozy it is
Just starting to read Craft in the Real World recently and so excited for this book's critiques of Western notions of writing craft & the mfa world
@yilinwriter The thing to do here, generally speaking, is to have conversations. It's not hellsite, after all.
@yilinwriter So glad to see more writers on the fedi!! And that sounds like it's right up my alley, thanks for the rec.
@ljwrites just starting to read it! Would be interested in discussing it more once I am further along
@yilinwriter Just finished reading that (well, sorta skimmed the back portions that are instructions for setting up academic workshops since that part doesn't have much practical application for me). So much good stuff inside.
@dani yeah so many folks have recommended it! it's been on my to-read for a while so glad to finally be getting to it
@yilinwriter I hadn't even heard of it until that whole "conflict" situation that happened on the bird site. So, at least one good thing came out of that.
