We hope you are enjoying Section 3 which features the case involving Khadija Ismayilova, an investigative journalist reporting on the Azerbaijan oil industry.

This week, we received the news on the death of Daphne Caruana Galizia, an investigative journalist from Malta. A harsh critic of the government, she was killed by a car bomb near her home. She wrote about her government's ties to Azerbaijan, and used the release of the Panama Papers to connect her government's leaders to bank accounts in Panama. The censoring of journalists and the Panama Papers are covered in the remaining two weeks. 

Next Wednesday, we will release section 4, "Press Freedom, Censorship, and Surveillance." In the meantime we hope you will continue to work through content and quizzes of the first three weeks of the course and that you will join or start the conversation on the discussion forum.

- Anya Schiffrin, Mihika Srivastava and the Course Team

Hello, everyone

As it's quite common for learners in WRITE101x to enrol multiple times, we apologise if you receive this email more than once, but we wanted to keep you informed of an opportunity to join us again.

Did you start the course and maybe couldn't find the time to complete it? Would you like to enrol again and share in your love of grammar? On 9 October, we will launch the seventh run of our course and would love you to be a part of our community of learners.

WRITE101x will once again aim to introduce you to key concepts and strategies related to grammar and style. Absorbing and applying these in your writing will help you to confidently respond to the unprecedented and accelerating demand for high levels of literacy that has arisen in the 21st century. 

As of today, the WRITE101x MOOC has attracted 498,020 students from 214 countries and territories, and we will no doubt surpass half a million learners with our seventh run! 

Register now and join Roslyn, Amber, Megan, and the team to help you learn more about Grammar, Syntax, and Style.

We would also encourage you to share this new run of our course with your friends and let us know if you plan to join us via the UQx Facebook or Twitter pages. 

We look forward to seeing you again in WRITE101x!

The WRITE101x team

Fwd: hello from ModPo! — we start on Saturday, September 9



Begin forwarded message:

Subject: hello from ModPo! — we start on Saturday, September 9

Dear Scott Lord & all those enrolled in ModPo:

I'm writing you briefly this morning from the Kelly Writers House in Philadelphia, PA, USA, to say hello, and welcome you (or welcome you back) to ModPo, our course on—and community gathered around—modern and contemporary U.S. poetry.

I will be writing again in the coming days. Please forgive the flurry of pre-course messages!

If you are receiving this message, you are properly enrolled in our course. Even though our discussions, and our movement through the nine "chapters" (sections) of the course won't officially begin until Saturday, September 9, you now have complete access to everything in the ModPo site. Please explore. Just go here:

https://www.coursera.org/learn/modpo/home/welcome

—and have a look around.

Be sure to click on "Resources" in the left-side menu. Click on all the links there, and you'll learn a lot about what ModPo is and what ModPo people do.

If you have questions, you can contact us at modpo@writing.upenn.edu.

For those of you who are returning to ModPo—and/or who have been enrolled since at least a year ago—I urge you to consider "doing" the 10-week course again with us during the September-through-November 2017 intensive mode. You will find that there are new poems and new video discussions added to our supplemental/parallel syllabus, ModPoPLUS.

If you are doing ModPo for a second, third, fourth, fifth, or sixth (!) time, I invite you to take the course through ModPoPLUS, through the TRC (Teacher Resource Center) and/or through CCCR (our crowdsourced close readings syllabus). There's PLENTY for you to do that will be new and fresh for you. Not to mention: you'll be able to talk with a new community of first-time ModPo'ers.

More from me again later. Meantime, once again, I want to say hello and welcome to a poetic community that has made my intellectual, aesthetic and personal life (yes) better and deeper these past six years.

Yours poetically,

—Al

P.S. Please, please tell your friends, colleagues, family, students and co-workers about ModPo. Forward this message to them. Give them this web address

https://www.coursera.org/learn/modpo

—where they can enroll. ModPo is free (no cost whatever, no hidden costs, no pricetag at all) and open to all and a very friendly place for people who know poetry but also those who are true novices.
