ANIS SHIVANI ARTICLE
Here's an article about MFA programs which dissects them thoroughly and well:
Where was Anis Shivani when the Underground Literary Alliance was presenting an alternative to the MFA system? The ULA was staging the revolutionary performance lit readings that Shivani asks for. It was a great-- and recent!-- history that was ruthlessly put down and is now completely ignored.
Do you want change, folks? Or not?
