  • PFFA – poetry critiquing forums – free.
    Poetry critiquing at various skill levels. You can post a maximum of one poem post per day. Each poem you post must be offset with at least three critiques of others’ work. If you can put ego to the side, this is a good place – if you can’t, don’t bother. The critiquing is tough. The point is to take it, to think deeply, to focus on the writing.
  • Coursera – college level literary arts, and other, courses – free.
    Taught, via WEx (The Writers Exchange) and Google+ Communities, by top instructors at top institutions. Available to anyone around the world, as long as you can get online regularly – all the teaching is done online.
