Thanks for visiting the web site for Writing Online: A Student's Guide to the Internet and World Wide Web. I hope you find the Crosslinks, resources, and other information gathered here useful. I welcome your feedback and any suggestions you have about Writing Online. I can be reached directly by email at email@example.com.
I've taught college level writing and English for 14 years, directed a writers' center, consulted with faculty on writing and teaching writing, given workshops and conference presentations on using the Internet and computers in the classroom, and taught teacher preparation courses on working with technology. Still, one of my favorite things to do is work on new editions of Writing Online. It gives me the chance to talk toand if you get in touch, withpeople like you, folk who are finding their way onto the Internet and World Wide Web because you want to write a little, maybe for a class project, maybe for personal pleasure, or maybe just because everyone else you know is doing it.
I wrote the book and web site with writers in mind. And I really do encourage you to write online. Don't just browse the Web. Contribute your words to it, write into it! Create a homepage. Join email lists. Find a Usenet group you like. Become a regular at your favorite MOO. Add your thoughts to a web forum discussion at your favorite online newspaper. Submit your stories, poems, and essays to online 'zines and journals. Write in every way and every place that moves you. Celebrate your thoughts and words; share them; and then tell your friends and family where to go to read them.
