I was just about to start into a post about the proven stupidity of some young writers, and how the really, really stupid writers were signing on with a know scam writer when John Scalzi wrote what I wanted to say, only much, much better, and even more pointed than I would have been, especially at the MFA programs.
Great fun. Go read it: John Scalzi’s Warning to MFA Students.
Then come back and we can talk about it in the comments if you want. (Also, read the underlying article that Scalzi points to about the contract terms if you haven’t already.)
