A friend has sent me the link for a wiki that might be of interest to anyone on the job market in creative writing. It’s well-known that it’s a bad year for hiring all across academe, but specific information, even if it’s not what we hope to hear, might help relieve anxiety. And the more people that add to the wiki, the more representative the sample will be.
Personally, if none of this works out, I’m thinking of painting an old bus psychedelic colors, loading it full of un- and underemployed writers, poets, artists, actors, musicians and photographers, and tripping even Farther across America in search of enlightenment and adventure. Surely there's still some of both to be had.
