Writing tuition

I am having writing tuition from a British university. So far I have had 2 sessions with the poetry tutor and one session with the non fiction person.

The non fiction tutor K explained about making your writing relevant to others. Not just pontificating on pet subjects, which I possibly do do. Then I listened to a recording of an open mic night given by Canadian classicist and poet Anne Carson. Wow! That is just one big digression. I mean Anne really writes about her pet subjects and presents it as entertainment. It is very high brow even cryptic dealing with the art markets and classical texts. Then again I think she delivers it with credibility and panache. She makes you interested even if by the end you have no idea what the hell is going on.

… I didn’t realise how much I missed the outside world.
