MFA Writers' Relationships with Writing
Olthouse, Jill M.
Journal of Advanced Academics, v24 n4 p259-274 Nov 2013
Through a qualitative research design, I explored how eight talented masters in fine arts (MFA) writers related to their craft. The phenomenon "relationship with writing" includes writers' goals, values, identity, and emotions as these relate to writing. I found that that these MFA writers experience compatibilities and conflicts between themselves and the demands of the domain. Overall, students' relationships with writing can be described as open, impractical, and social.
