‘Since writing is ideally a balance between the private vision and the public world, the one passionate and inchoate, the other formally constructed, quick to categorise and assess, it’s necessary to think of this art as a craft. Without craft, art remains private. Without art, craft is merely hackwork.’

– Joyce Carol Oates, The Faith of a Writer
