Anakana Schofield – Award Winning Author of Bina, Martin John and Malarky

Sunday questions

1. What has been the role in the explosion of writer as teacher and creative writing industry in reducing the amount of literary criticism (and such considering) generated?

2. And the question of academia. It seems to me that academics are able to generate critical writings because they have a pay check. Is this the only model by which such writing can be achieved? Is it fair to make a distinction between an academic and a working writer (someone who doesn’t have a pay check from a teaching job) and for whom the writing generates the food source? Or is that entirely irrelevant?

3. How can I build an improvised greenhouse on my petite balcony? (low budget masking tape and pole style)
