Davina Bell asks why the current generation of writers is so often accused of navel gazing.


  • Epigraph: You may be a precious snowflake, but if you can't express your individuality in sterling prose, I don't want to read about it. Young writers will have to swear off navel-gazing in favor of an outward glance onto a wrecked and lovely world worthy and in need of the attention of intelligent, sensitive writers. - Ted Genoways, Mother Jones
