In just over three weeks, the University of Iowa will kick off the first session in its first-ever creative writing MOOC: How Writers Write Poetry, a free six-week online course. How Writers Write Poetry will bring thousands of poets, aspiring poets, and poetry-lovers from across the globe together through writing exercises, interactive writing workshops, and discussions of the craft of poetry. With participants coming together from more than fifty countries and every continent except Antarctica (come on, Antarctic poets!), we’re hoping participants might share a glimpse of where their poems are coming from. In the same vein as The New York TimesA Writer’s Room, The Guardian’s Writers’ Rooms, and the IWP's own 91st Meridian, we’re inviting poets enrolled in the course to share photos of their creative spaces. Where do you write? Take a photo of your writing place and Tweet it at us @UIIWP hashtag #Iwritehere or share it with us on Facebook and we’ll retweet the ten best examples.

There’s still time to enroll in How Writers Write Poetry, which opens June 28, 2014. The course is part of a new University of Iowa MOOC series: How Writers Write: Talks on Craft and Commitment; a fiction writing course will launch in September 2014.

Special thanks to Between the Lines counselor Nana for letting us post this photo of her writing space. More photos of Nana's spaces here.
