Title: So why the hell do you want to be a writer anyway?

Status: confirmed

Proposed by: Cat Sparks


Three per cent of writers ever manage to make a living out of it. 3 out of 5000 unsolicited manuscripts submitted to publishers make it across the line. However, Clarions, universities and community colleges are churning out more wannabe writers than ever, despite troubled times in the publishing industry and the collapse of traditional venues for short stories. Isn't there something better you could be doing with your time? Discuss.
