Writers, the folks behind WordPress are launching a free poetry course. I’ve participated in their blogging workshops and they’re great! Free, participatory, as much or as little work as you want to put in, and did I mention, FREE?
Poets of the world, unite!
The idea behind Writing 201: Poetry is to bring together poets of all styles, temperaments, and experience levels in a way that encourages writing, sharing, and discussion.
You get to decide how laid back or challenging you want the course to be.
Each day for the duration of the course (not counting weekends), you’ll receive an assignment, made up of three parts: a word prompt, a poetic form, and a poetic device. You get to choose which of these you want to explore (if any).
