Creating a Writing Studio Account

For additional and more detailed information and help on using the Writing Studio class pages, you can visit the guides located at: http://writing.colostate.edu/help/

 

Using the Writing Studio : We will use the web forum and other tools provided by the Writing Studio for posting responses to readings and discussions from class, in addition to drafts of some writing assignments. Responses to questions/writing assignments on the forum will count as part of your homework grade. There are also many tools in the Writing Studio that you can use to help you with your writing for this class and others (check out the guides and working bibilography tool).
