“I didn’t go to journalism school. I never went to any graduate program in writing at all. If I was starting out now, I’d go to Colorado and work for High Country News. I’d try to get writing somewhere for somebody, get paid for it, and see what went on. My inclination would be to grow on the job, but not to the exclusion of these programs. Writing teaches writing. The doing of writing develops the writer, and the teacher coaches.”
