At the very beginning of my creative writing course at the Faculty of Philology, University of Belgrade, I used to ask my students a seemingly simple question: “Why do we write?” Every time, there was a variety of imaginative attempts to answer, but only rarely did they come near to the truth—that we write because we still haven’t invented any better way to provide answers to the most profound existential questions. No other discipline, artistic or non-artistic, regardless of how illuminating it might be in this respect, can really compete with the art of prose.
