Writing Career and Academic Job Frustrations

I found a personal essay about the search for an academic writing job by Emilia Phillips in today’s Practicing Writing blog post from Erika Driefus. This personal essay captures the essence of the process of finding a writing job, a professorship, or both.  It’s a well-written emotive account of the struggle and the sacrifice writers and writing professors have to make to achieve their dream career.  It’s the essence of what I blog about here (and the motive behind why I blog here).

Here’s the direct link to “The Cost of the Academic Job: A Personal Narrative”
