where the writers are
So very, very, many, many words

     For those of you who crave information on the craft of writing, check out this New Yorker piece by Louis Menand on writers, writing, conferences, MFA’s, and all American authors living, dead, or possibly in utero.  Many, many interesting pages.  All you could ever hope to know about creative writing programs. 

     I myself found the photo the most intriguing:  the four men are comfortable in armchairs while the two women sit on the porch steps at their feet.  Of course one of the men is Robert Frost, but who are the others?  Anyone recognize them?
