The nice folks over at The Review Review–which, by the way, is an AWESOME resource for writers researching literary journals and where to send short stories, poetry, and essays–asked me to contribute to their Publishing Tips blog, and after some back-and-forth with the editor, I decided to write something about the intersection of teaching and writing.
Nope, I had not exhausted that topic in TINAWM (yeah, I was as surprised as you are!). The blog is called “Remember Who You Are,” which is a piece of valuable advice that I received from a mentor when I was teaching full time a few years after completing my MFA and considering getting a PhD in Composition. I didn’t get that PhD, and this is the story of why not.
The blog has gotten a lot of RTs and shares, and I’m very grateful. Writers really want to hear and have honest conversations about the realities of the writing life, and I feel very privileged to get to be part of those conversations. So, thanks for reading and sharing. It’s never too late to reply!
