Norman Mailer: On Writing Classes


'I learned a great deal from writing classes. … And it also chops down that terribly unstable vanity that young writers have, you know, where they think, ‘I’m a great writer’, and at the same time they can’t take a single criticism, and writing courses are good for that. They weather you. It’s a little bit like a kid who wants to play varsity football but never tries out for the team. So you go to that writing class and you get toughened up a little.'
