Are you a fan of MOOCS? Do you know what a MOOC stands for? I did, but I forgot so I had to google it again.
It stands for “Massive Online Open Course.”
So here is one that I saw pop up that looks interesting: How Writers Write POETRY. That’s in CAPS there because there’s a fiction one also.
This June, the University of Iowa offers its second massive open online course: [aha!] How Writers Write POETRY. Six weeks of craft discussions and workshops online. Free and open to all.
I’ll be giving it a look.
Last year I sat in on Al Filreis’ “Modern and Contemporary American Poetry” at the University of Pennsylvania, offered via Coursera. That one starts in September. Highly recommended. I thought it was terrific. Read about it and register here.
There are lots of MOOCS around, for almost anything. These are the only two poetry ones I know of though. If you know of any others, post them here. ..
