On September 12, we at the Writers House will host a free, 10-week, non-credit online course on modern and contemporary American poetry. Every aspect of the course is optional. The discussions are lively and feature participants from every continent and every time zone.
Many Penn alumni have participated and given “ModPo” (as we call our course) positive reviews. (To those who have already been in ModPo: come back and try out our new supplemental syllabus of poems, “ModPoPLUS.”)
ModPo is an experiment in learning community, and has gathered each of the three previous autumns.
