Hi Everyone. From time to time I remind people when the Stanford Continuing Studies Online Courses are available. We're signing people up for Spring right now for a variety of Creative Writing courses. Do visit if you're interested...
From Dan Colman, Director of Stanford Continuing Studies, and webmaster of Open Culture:
Quick fyi: Starting Monday, you can sign up for online writing courses at Stanford. (See list below.) Offered by Stanford Continuing Studies and the Stanford Creative Writing Program (one of the most distinguished writing programs in the country), these online courses give beginning and advanced writers, no matter where they live, the chance to refine their craft with gifted writing instructors and smart peers. Just to be clear, the courses are not free, and they will start the first week of April. For more information, click here, or separately check out the FAQ.
(Full disclosure: I helped set up these courses and think they’re a great educational opportunity. But nonetheless take my opinion with a grain of salt.)
