I recently wrote an article for The Guardian’s blog about how the rise of the Creative Writing course had killed creativity in writing and led to the death of the experimental novel. The Guardian posted it next to the announcement of the Man Booker short list and it caused quite a response.
I said, among other things, that publishers and agents were very conservative and tended only to accept manuscripts recommended by tutors in Creative Writing. These tutors, who include many big-name novelists, need to keep getting published to keep their jobs, and so feed this circle of conservative writing.
