Shared ePortfolios

One of the ways you might be sharing work with other writers is by sharing ePortfolios. If another writer has shared an ePortfoliowith you, you can find it by clicking the "ePortfolios" tab or link on your personal page. This will open a section that lists all the ePortfolios you've created, as well as the ePortfolios shared with you and those you've shared with other writers.
