How Writers Write Fiction: A Free Online Course from the University of Iowa’s International Writing Program

Ever dreamed of attending a prestigious school of creative writing? Here’s your chance.

Starting on 27 September, writers can participate in the latest MOOC offered by the University of Iowa’s International Writing Program. The program is titled, How Writers Write Fiction: Talks on Craft and Commitment.

The course will run until 8 November and intends to be an interactive study of the practice of creating writing. Program coordinator will be Christopher Merrill, Director of the International Writing Program. A curated collection of talks created by fifty authors of poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and literary translation will be featured. Online discussions, writing assignments and practical workshops will complement the talks.

I think this is a great opportunity for both established and budding writers who want to improve their craft, especially since How Writers Write Fiction: Talks on Craft and Commitment is free and open to all. No need to fear rejection as there are no limits on enrolment numbers.

Looking forward to seeing you there.
