I'm due to start an English Literature degree in September with hopes of becoming a fiction writer. I know you don't need a degree to be a writer but I want to study English because I like it. Some people have said creative writing is better but since I don't know anyone with this degree I'd like to know:
1. What do you learn in a creative writing degree?
2. Is it worth it in the long run?
3. Am I at a disadvantage doing English literature?
