"Every year among the new intake of students, I find a selection of writers who are so talented that it is inspiring and exhilarating to work with them and watch them get even better. The question is not ‘Can you really teach creative writing?’ The Question is ‘how much can you improve by immersing students in the process over two or three years?’ The answer is a lot. Make sure you’ve got something to say. If you can convince us that you read widely and that you can write a decent sentence then you’re on to a winner."
