How did you juggle writing professor with memoirist? Transitioned from journalist to professor to carve out more time to write when I got serious about creative nonfiction. Is an MFA necessary to land a great agent?
Juggle is the operative word! I did have to juggle and I got most of my writing done during the summer. An MFA may give you the time to write a good manuscript. That's what will get you an agent.
