The Writing Studio provides an interactive, online space that supports writers, writing classes, and writing groups. The Studio builds on resources we've created on Writing@CSU since 1992, including our writing guides, writing activities, collections, and links to other resources on the Web.
To help you as you write, the Studio (and the sites that use its source code) offers a personal online space where you can compose and save your work. Accounts are free and privacy is protected.
To support writing classes, the Studio offers a course management system that includes most of the tools found in commercial systems -- as well as wikis, ePortfolios, blogs, and other tools that support the learning and teaching of writing.
To support writing groups, the Studio offers a Wiki tool that incorporates calendar, discussion forum, blogging, and ePortfolio tools, as well as additional communication tools.
To help you share your work with others, the Studio offers blogs, wikis, and ePortfolios -- as well as a robust course management system. The blogs, wikis, and ePortfolio tools can be used within courses or on their own, and you can decide whether to share them with others. Depending on your preferences, all of your work can be completely private (or at least as private as anything can be on the Web), shared with only a handful of others, or open to the world.
To help you learn to write, the Studio and the larger Writing@CSU Web site provide access to the largest collection of Web-based resources for writers and writing teachers. Written by more than 300 contributors, these materials support instruction in a wide range of writing processes and genres.
To Contribute to the Studio Project: We're committed to sharing our work with as many writers and writing teachers as possible. If you'd like to contribute to our efforts, perhaps by authoring a instructional materials or by offering suggestions and evaluative comments, please contact Mike Palmquist at Mike.Palmquist@ColoState.edu or (970) 491-3132.
