What is Suprose?

Welcome to Suprose.

Why Su-prose? "Su" in Sanskrit is a prefix for "good". This is a place where we will discuss and analyze prose (with a South Asian Connection) - that which is good, awesome, excellent, and maybe rant about prose that could be better.

Whether you love prose, are a prose expert, or want to learn more about prose, or to put it simply want to have anything to do with prose, this blog is for you.

The Raging Creative Writing Debate!

The debate about training to be a writer has been ongoing. One of the latest articles was initiated by Hanif Kureishi in an article in The Guardian, saying that creative writing courses are a waste of time. Many of his students could write sentences but could not tell stories.

A week later another article was published as a response, where other leading author/teachers revealed their advice to students.

And the debate rages on, should creative writing be taught? Isn't it like any other art form and good combination of aptitude and finesse that is derived from learning and practice? Does it really have to be one or the other... What do you think?
