Flannery O'Connor on stifling writers

“Everywhere I go I’m asked if I think the universities stifle writers. My opinion is they don’t stifle enough of them. There’s many a best-seller that could have been prevented by a good teacher.”
 Flannery O’Connor, “The Nature and Aim of Fiction,” in Mystery and Manners: Occasional Prose  (1969, Garrar, Straus and Giroux, 84-84)
