Hug Your Boss Day

  • the Writing Center Director
  • my Advising Director in my teaching program at school
  • (wait those two are the same person)
  • every editor I’ve ever had
  • most editors, except for some of them
  • the Program Coordinator at the community center downtown
  • the Dean and Chair of the Preprofessional Advising Committee
  • the coordinator for the grant-writing consulting stuff that’s coming up again
  • the barista at the cafe where I write
  • my cats
  • myself
  • everyone who listens to The Catapult?
  • It’s probably a good thing I’m not seeing most of those people today
  • get off the internet, Jaime, and write.

“This is the inside joke of creative writing programs in America. We know creative writing doesn’t make money, and yet we continue to graduate talented writers with no business acumen. At best, it is misguided. At worst, it is fraudulent.”

We need to teach students more about the business aspect of the writing life. (via millionsmillions)

I loved my MFA program, but I had to scrabble and scrape to get what few ounces of industry savvy I left with. This is a problem.

If you live in NYC, come see me, Jack, Summer, and Mike lecture about dumb things. It’s going to be fun. There’s going to be keynote presentations.
It’s at Housing Works bookstore in SoHo at 7pm tomorrow. There will be beer!
I’m giving a VERY thoughtful and well-researched talk about Pokémon and the origins of life. Here’s a preview:


This is tonight! Tanner is talking about the origin of life, summeranne is talking emoji semiotics, and Jack is doing something about Die Hard and Aristotle. I don’t know what Mike is lecturing on, but I’m sure it’s some other smart as fuck sort of stuff. 7pm at housingworksbookstore.

Maybe the best/worst part about this night of silliness at housingworksbookstore on Tuesday is that Tanner’s presentation is partly cannibalized from a failed/rejected science essay pitch of mine. (He’s turned it into so much more.) Waste not want not!
