I’m shooting from the hip here, but I believe you have a gift for writing. I also believe gifts are meant to be shared. I vote for a creative writing emphasis.

Besides, if it hadn’t been for writers, the literary scholars wouldn’t have anything to study.

Good morning, my friend.

I was just thinking the same thing. I wonder if Coleridge and Wordsworth had to put up with their colleagues poo-pooing their “creative” endeavors…. Speaking of which, perhaps the devision has something to do with the fact that so much creative work these days appears to require little or no talent.

Thank you for the compliment. :)

You’re welcome.

There may be another reason that creative writing “can’t get no respect” - it’s become very profitable commercially, although as you say, it requires little or no talent. It’s annoying enough that people hack out drivel, but it’s downright insulting that they get paid for it. (grin)

Diana, I love the idea of a PhD in Creative Writing! I know that you have a wonderful talent for writing, either creatively or scholastically, and I think the PhD in CW would give you the opportunity to apply both!

Also, so you will know, Coleridge and Wordsworth DID have to put up with the jeerings of the “scholastic writers/poets” of their day. I learned that in a class I took during my graduate years, at SFA. Their work is still poo-poo-ed by many otherwise smart people!

Good luck, Dear. I’m betting you will make the right choice, and will swim right through the course!

Much love!
