Book: Investigative Creative Writing
Chapter: 9. Nine Recommendations for Growing Creative Writing Programs

Commonsense givens like funding, the currency of literary journals, and building a culture of reading are offered before getting into more complex considerations like faculty needing to really want to grow creative writing programs and creating a brand that stands out from the rest. Some surprise ideas are offered as well.
