Teach Me to Breathe and to Write

For your edification, the link takes you to an article by Louis Menand entitled Show or Tell: Should Creative Writing Be Taught?  I guess it begs the question of the month.  Should it?

Why not. Keeps people busy.

On separate note: I saw someone mention in their creds
a contest won on a blog. Is this mentionable????? A blog writing contest, where the judge is the guy who has the blog and the blog is where he throws up his own florid writing. How can this possibly be (1) a good use of time; (2) helpful to your career path?

really? a blog contest? this was an author bio in a 'zine, not a real lit mag, right?

It was an author blurb on an agent's website where the author has a novel coming out next year.
