Against Creative Writing Studies (and for Ish-ness)
"When I talk about my work that might now be claimed by creative writing studies, I refer to it as scholarship in or writing about creative writing pedagogy and the profession. That’s how I note it in my annual and promotion reviews and how I phrase it in my contributor’s note. This work has counted—I’ve been acknowledged for this work—at a medium-sized open-enrollment state university and at small and medium-sized comprehensive private institutions. I don’t use the term creative writing studies to refer to what I do. Despite my longstanding aspiration to explore creative writing pedagogy, creativity, and the profession, this article is a declaration against the de rigueur term."
