It’s Back!!


Don’t even hesitate to sign up for this FREE 10-week Coursera class through the Writer’s House at U Penn. I took this last year and gained a whole new appreciation for poetry. Better hurry. I copied this from their Facebook page: “We are 49 people shy of 30,000 enrolled in ModPo, which begins tomorrow morning at 9 am Philly time. People are currently enrolling at a rate of 2,723 per week.”



Modern & Contemporary American Poetry

ModPo is a fast-paced introduction to modern and contemporary U.S. poetry, with an emphasis on experimental verse, from Dickinson and Whitman to the present. Participants (who need no prior experience with poetry) will learn how to read poems that are supposedly “difficult.”

Get all your questions answered and then register.

Your poetry cup will overflow.


November PAD

While I continue to stumble through Submit-O-Rama (only four more days left)  and MoDPo, (we are learning about the New York school of poets) I want to remind all poets that the Writers’ Digest November Poem-A-Day challenge is right around the corner and everyone is invited to play.


Meanwhile, feel free to use my Autumn photo as inspiration. Poem On!
