What is Writing Studio?

The work you create in the Writing Studio is stored in the cloud (a database) so that you can revise it, send it to others, or ask others to comment on it from any computer that has internet access. Your work is kept in a confidential, password-protected account so that the only people who can view your work are you and those you ask to review it.

Before using the Writing Studio, you will need to create an account. Once you've created an account you can log in to it using your email address and your password. Please remember to keep track of your password. However, if you forget your password, we can send it to you via electronic mail. For more information, see 'If you lose your password' below.

Please note that if you have already used the Writing Studio for personal use or as the member of a class, you do not need to set up a new account for a new class. Unless you have personal reasons to do otherwise, one Writing Studio account is all you'll ever need, (and having multiple accounts tends to make it more confusing for you when you are taking classes that use the Writing Studio).
