Some people fantasize about vacations in Paris; I fantasize about getting an MFA in creative writing. There are so many reasons not to -- it's a vanity degree; I already have a career that I love; I don't have an extra $26,000+ lying around; I don't even really like "MFA-style" literary fiction. But still... the writing retreats! The focus on expressing yourself and on communicating universal truths about human nature! The ability to add another set of letters after my name! I want that.

This book has everything. Divided into fourteen chapters containing concise essays with practical, useful advice. Topics range from finding grants to vetting contracts to ebooks to trade shows. This book reveals the dirty underbelly of the writing industry that MFA brochures don't advertise. Buy this for the writer in your life; it's the treasure trove of hard-won knowledge from forty-five contributors. A bargain at any price.
