thank you! (that sounds like a wonderful plan.) i studied english and creative writing as an undergrad and loved my work study job in the archives dept. of my school’s library, so i kept my eyes peeled for library positions when i started my job search after graduation. I ended up finding a position at an academic library closer to home. i don’t have an MLS (masters in library science) so i’m not like a capital “L” librarian, but i spend my whole day checking out books and doing other booky things which is nice. as for the creative writing scholar bit, i am just starting my second semester of an MFA program in creative writing. if you want to pursue a career in writing and don’t mind staying in school, i would definitely recommend getting an MFA. you join a community of writers and form connections with peers, faculty, and other people in the industry. also, the MFA is the highest degree you can get in the writing field so having one qualifies you for teaching. a lot of people from my program have had books published and some of them teach writing classes at other colleges. if you have any other questions feel free to ask.
meghanpjc sent: Your blog is so beautiful. I want to take every book into a cozy corner and read it like my eyes are starving for the letters! Also, how did you become a librarian and a creative writing scholar? I am majoring in Creative Writing right now, and I'm anxiously searching for career advice1
