The world's worst writer?

Contrary to popular opinion (in these here parts, anyway, by which I mean the living room, kitchen, and adjacent areas), the world's worst writer is not Brian Horeck. It is, according to Irish literary types, a lass named Amanda McKittrick Ros.

Read about her, and the accompanying festival in her honour, here and here.

However, in defence of our own personal Canadian hero Horeck, I submit that we make Minnow Trap a catch-phrase, meaning to have achieved the lowest standard humanity can tolerate. "You've been Minnow Trapped!"
