    Isn’t that called, “the MFA program I’m going to in the Fall”? :) Actually, last year the Boston Book Festival did “Writer Idol” where there was a panel of judges who voted on the best writer after a dozen or so did a reading. I think this could work! Only PBS would be interested in the rights, though.
