Innovative Cascadia Poetry MOOC

From Jared Leising:

Cascadia College Bothell LogoHi, I’m writing with some exciting news.

In collaboration with Cascadia College and Cascadia Poetics Lab, we’re offering a free, online course through the CANVAS Network on innovative poetry of the Cascadia bioregion.

It’s easy to register for the course, and to do so, please go to
It’s six weeks long, and starts on January 25th.  If you’re new to online learning, not to worry, there are some easy ways to learn how to navigate Canvas and get up to speed quickly once you’re registered.
While we’re looking for full and consistent participation in the course, we understand if you are just curious and want to engage briefly or occasionally, and we welcome that, too.
In the end, we hope this course is a conversation, and we seek participation and feedback that can help us enhance the course prior to the 2016 Cascadia Poetry Festival, when we’ll be offering the course again during fall quarter.
So, please consider joining us, and registering for the course, and if you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
Thanks,
Jared Leising
Coordinator
