"To Be Lived": Theorizing Influence in Creative Writing
Cain, Mary Ann
College English, v71 n3 p229-241 Jan 2009
As a field, creative writing must reject its traditional image of "uselessness" and realize its anticapitalist, antiprivatizing potential as a creator of public space. In part, this move would involve teaching students to question traditional notions of influence, as well as the modernist concept of the author as a lone, autonomous individual.
