How to Use the Site
Use the Tips and Tricks on the right to move through the site. For developing and writing stories, start at the top and work your way down.
If you’re working on an informative or research paper, go to Informative Writing for specific tips and advice.
If you want to persuade or convince others, go to Writing Opinions & Arguments.
Check out the blogroll at the bottom of the site for helpful links.
Practice using the tips and tricks by completing the practice activities along the way. If you’d like other writers to comment on your work, you can post completed activities at the bottom of each practice page.
You can also ask for comments or suggestions from others by posting anything you’ve written to the Your Writing pages. If you have a specific question about your writing or submission, you can create a poll for readers to answer. For instructions on how to post your writing and request reader polls, go to Share Your Writing. In return, offer comments and suggestions on others’ work as often as you can.
Note: It may take 1-2 days for your work and/or comments to show up on the site. Please be patient. I read every word before I add it to the site. Rude or inappropriate posts are not allowed. This is a friendly place and I want it to stay that way.
