A guy who once thought he’d be a poet (then realized years later how bad his work was) decided to make a documentary about bad writing.
He interviews more than a dozen established writers, including people like Margaret Atwood, Steve Almond, David Sedaris, and Lee Gutkind. (The title of this post is a direct quote from Atwood.)
The documentary isn’t currently enjoying wide distribution, but there are some wonderful moments in the trailer. Watch below, and/or visit the site for “Bad Writing: The Movie.”
Hat tip to one of my writing students, Brett Valls, for finding and sharing this with me.
