While most of our posts focus on poetry, there’s certainly a lot of overlap between poets and writers of other genres. So we include here this notice of a University of Iowa Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) that begins on Tuesday, October 11, 2016: How Writers Write Fiction 2016: Storied Women, taught by Professors Christopher Merrill and Margot Livesey.
Open to all genders, this course is centered on female voices. Participants will tackle two crucial elements of fiction writing: character and structure. The course will include a diversity of perspectives and advice on principles and processes from an amazing group of contributing authors (see graphic).
The course is free of charge and it’s not too late to enroll. Writers of all levels are welcome; no experience is necessary! To learn more, visit the University of Iowa How Writers Write Fiction page.
