The State of Creative Writing? I Want Your Input!

Hi OB-ers, remember that presentation (The Angel at Our Table) I gave at that conference in August (see the Storm of History posts)? Well, that presentation provoked a brave soul to ask me for a chapter on the state of creative writing in a neo-liberal universe. It'll be in an anthology to be published Spring 2011.

They'd like me to concentrate on creative writing programs at universities, colleges, etc. What's your take on the state of creative writing programs, the marketplace for writers and creative writing in a neo-liberal world?

Please share. Keep the rants but please share the thoughtfulness. Short or long, all comments are helpful to let me know what you are all thinking and feeling.

Thanks!!
