Wyndham reports on the trend for writers to undertake postgraduate studies in creative writing as a means of supporting themselves financially. Wyndham notes that some Australian writers, including John Tranter, are studying with the benefit of scholarships.
Wyndham canvasses the views of writers about the dispersal of limited funding dollars. Those who comment include Delia Falconer, Alex Miller, Nicola Walker, Peter Skrzynecki and chair of the Australian Council's Literature Board, Peter Goldsworthy. Views differ as to whether support should be given to emerging or established writers.
