Online Writing Workshop

Have you wondered where I've been? Maybe not, but anyway, I've been up to something. I've been taking an online poetry course.

Because I live in Japan and don't have a writing group or writing friends that I can see on a regular basis, I thought a class might be a good way to revitalize my writing, and also perhaps to introduce me to a writing community.

I found online poetry classes from the following various venues:

Chicago School of Poetics

The Writer's Center

Continuing Studies at UW Madison

Tinker Mountain Writers Workshop

Barrelhouse Online Workshops

Writer's Digest University

Gotham Writers

Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown 24PearlStreet

The Rooster Moans Poetry Cooperative

The Albany Poetry Workshop

Lighthouse Writers Workshop

UCLA Extension

There are undoubtedly more than these, and I probably looked at more, but these are the ones that I made note of, and from these programs, I chose a course and finished it over the weekend. In my next post, I'll tell you more.

Jessica, thanks for this list. Molly Fisk's Poetry Bootcamp is another online workshop; she's in Nevada City, CA.

I look forward to seeing you next month!

Thanks for the reminder about Molly Fisk, Mari. Back in December/January when I was doing my research, her website had her on a hiatus, and I didn't go back later to check. But she's running workshops again now:

Looking forward to seeing you too!
