University of Montana - Creative writing is more than just a numbers game

May 10, 2018View for printing

One of the stated goals of the Strategy for Distinction -- the plan to strengthen the University of Montana and secure its future by cutting its operating budget -- is to create "agile, lifelong learners." For those of you who do not speak business, this phrase means "people who can change jobs every three years." I have mastered that skill, first at a series of weird and volatile day jobs and now, for almost 10 years, as an unkempt and nervous professional writer. And I owe it all to the creative writing program at the University of Montana.

The future of that program is now in doubt.
