MOOC your winter

October 30, 2018

The International Writing Program of the University of Iowa has just announced a new Massive Open Online Course (MOOC): “Stories of Place: Writing and the Natural World.”

Participants will work with some of the many possible types of creative non-fiction, including essays, science journalism, travel narratives, and speculative portrayals of the natural future. (Poetry isn’t mentioned in the description, but why not?) Writers will work with “ways to portray truth and fact, whether it involves telling stories about the local, the global, the invisible, the beautiful, or the uncertain.”

The instructor-led course begins November 15, 2018, and continues through December 31, 2018. After that, it will remain open online through March 15, 2019, for self-paced learning. The course is free and registration is now open.
