This is not specific to children's writing, but writing is writing! The University of Iowa's International Writing Program (not the Iowa Writer's Workshop) offered MOOCs in "How Writers Write Fiction" and "How Writers Write Poetry" in 2014. They are repeating them in 2015, and the 8-week poetry class begins on March 23. Fiction begins in June. Here's a link:

Thanks, rab!

You are the second person who has recommended these courses.
Have you taken any of them? The poetry sounds great & starts March 23rd.

Thanks for posting this!

I've never taken one, but would love to hear from anybody who has. I forgot to mention: they're free.
