Where we’ll work

Google Drive

We will write our stories or scripts in Google docs, set the share settings to “CAN EDIT” and then share them in a public folder for peer and instructor editing. If the folder is being wonky, also share the file via email. Edit by leaving comments, questions and suggestions as you see fit.

Every piece can be improved. Be constructive. Be real. But don’t be a jerk.

Remember, part of your participation grade will account for how engaged you are in providing genuine feedback to help your peers succeed.

This platform, again free, is where we’ll share our finished work with broader audiences before, hopefully, they’re picked up by other outlets. You just need to accept my invitation to become a contributor to my blog.

When you have the final version of an assignment due or your Story behind the story post here’s what to do.

  1. Publish the post to as a contributor to my site.
  2. Email me the post link so I can go directly to it.
  3. I’ll approve your submission so it appears on our site.

Doodle polls

I’ve set these up for each individual writing conference in my office. Look for them on each assignment post (here, for example, is the one for Essay). Sign up to schedule when you want to meet with me to discuss your story. Do so as we progress through the semester, or sign up for your preferred time now for all the assignments. It’s first come, first served.

Questions on any of these? Let me know.
