MFA Vs NYC
The Two Cultures of American FictionBook - 2014
"Chad Harbach and contributors map out the 'two cultures' of American fiction: MFA programs and NYC publishing. In a widely read essay titled 'MFA vs. NYC,' bestselling novelist Chad Harbach (The Art of Fielding) argued that the American literary scene has split into two cultures: New York publishing versus university MFA programs. This book brings together established writers, MFA professors and students, and New York editors and agents to talk about these overlapping worlds, and the ways writers make (or fail to make) a living within them." -- Provided by publisher.
