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
Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown 24PearlStreet
The Rooster Moans Poetry Cooperative
The Albany Poetry Workshop
Lighthouse Writers Workshop
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.
