Neutering effects?

At 3AM Magazine, Toby Litt has some harsh words for U.S. creative writing programs:

The wise advice of American creative writing teachers is actually neutering. It’s much better to risk making a complete arse of yourself in the hope that out of that will come something truly odd and possibly great. There wasn’t enough daring in it really. That’s what I’m thinking at the moment, that polite tendencies aren’t enough. Polite realist tendencies aren’t enough. Do something else.
