So you hate writing workshops. Then maybe just don’t go?
I’m white and I’ve taken writers workshops.
No writers workshops I know of pay anyone except professors or presenting writers. Few pay them. In graduate programs graduate students who become graduate assistants and teaching assistants get free tuition and sometimes housing in exchange for teaching or doing work for professors that a person being paid to do it would receive 30-40 thousand dollars. They are usually given less than minimum wage and no benefits other than access to the standard student health insurance plan.
MFA programs do separate the wannabe writing workshop group away.
The site of people wasting time in these writers workshops when they could be enjoying their lives otherwise and not feeling bad for what they have done in life hurts!
