Writing Courses from Universities (Free)

Pretty cool little list of universities that offer free writing courses... for what they're worth (I'm not sure about a creative writing class from MIT)

News University is a program offered by the Poynter Institute. If you're into journalism and/or non-fiction writing, they offer some very good, free courses.

Nice-to-know information. Thanks.

Just received an e-mail today from Whidbey, the first MFA program organized by writers, in Washington State. Not free, but interesting low-residency program. Valentine's Day flash fiction contest if anyone cares to submit. See http://www.writeonwhidbey.org/mfa/index.htm.
 Cruising the Green of Second Avenue is available at Barnes & Noble and other online book sellers. More good stuff at http://allotropiclucubrations.blogspot.com
