You as participants will read and listen to writers (many of them former IWP Fall Residents) speaking about and writing about voice, character, setting, style, language, and about "moving the margins" of the known and the expected. And as writers you will work with balancing vivid imagination with craft, towards an inclusiveness that allows for different kinds of thinking and different kinds of writing.

This MOOC-Pack has an overview section and six learning sessions. You can access each session by clicking the appropriate link on the navigation menu to the left. You can begin with the overview section and continue in order through sessions 1-6.
