Financial Literacy for Writers

DD’s recent post on financial literacy got me thinking how understanding loans and spending are crucial for college students and perhaps especially for those studying writing.  Writers often spend more time with words than numbers and so one has to consider how at risk they are for higher costs or debt.  For example, what’s your basic knowledge on spending?  Take this quiz to see.

Though clearly dramatic as only a talk show persona can be, Suze Orman presented a resounding and frustratingly accurate speech last year on student loan debt that some have commented should be required viewing for beginning college students.

Student loans are serious business, and student writers should understand that their signature dedicates them to clear responsibility.
