Polish Your Word Skills with a Free MOOC

Hone your writing skills with the newest MOOC* from University of Iowa’s International Writing Program. Titled “Moving the Margins: Fiction and Inclusion,” during this course you will have the opportunity to read and listen to writers discussing voice, character, setting, style and language.

The focus of this free course will be on “moving the margins” of the known and the expected. Participating writers will work on balancing vivid imagination with craft, moving towards an inclusiveness that allows for different kinds of thinking and different kinds of writing.

The University of Iowa’s International Writing Program’s MOOCs are open to anyone, anywhere in the world, free of charge. This next MOOC session runs July 15 – Aug. 31, but the course site will remain open until Sept. 15. You may take the course at your own pace during that window of time.
