Collaborative Writing Links
The internet combines different styles of communication creating the perfect system for collaborative projects. This page looks mainly at those projects that combine email and the web. The web offers a way of publishing work to an international audience while email makes the actual process of collaboration possible even when the writer's reside in different countries. I have tried to show examples of as many different works as possible. Some of the pages are more successful than others, but they are all worth a look even if you decide their approach is not successful. Ultimately these internet projects are still very experimental and the writing is often quite raw but the variety of ideas and styles of writing that can be brought together by just a click of a mouse button makes this an exciting area to explore.

Since 1993, the Creativity Workshop has been taught to people in businesses of all kinds from all over the world, from CEOs to scientific think tanks to small business owners, working in specializations as diverse as finance, IT, marketing, PR, industrial design, accounting, and public relations.
The Creativity Workshop offers a series of tools that help participants develop their creative, collaborative, storytelling and writing skills, as well as their self-confidence. To this end, the workshop concentrates its experiential exercises in the following areas:
1. Getting over fear of creativity
Getting over fear of creativity and gaining belief in one's ideas. We do exercises which help students get over 'blocks' which make them afraid to express themselves, say the wrong things, paint a bad picture, take a stupid photograph, write a foggy paragraph. The workshop works against self-censorship in the early stages of development so that critical analytical skills can come into play later and more forcefully. To this end, we use techniques of free form drawing and writing, the importance of playfulness, as well as visualization and meditation exercises.

How long did it take you to write that novel?" a student of mine recently asked. "My whole life," I replied... getting arrested (mistakenly) as a contraband runner in Nigeria,
teaching hands-on seminars on writing and publishing in new media,
stroking the gold-medal four in the Royal Canadian Henley Regatta,
giving birth naturally at home in a bathtub jacuzzi,
pouring through post/colonial theory and fiction

rollerblading with a stroller in Prospect Park,

Good Teaching + Multimedia = Writing Success
Martha Gowetski's tenth-grade English class in Wayland, Massachusetts which includes students with learning disabilities is buzzing with activity. One group of students is crowded around a large fow chart mapping out their adventure story. They are busy editing text cards, taping pictures, and placing compact disks on the chart. Several students are drawing pictures, and others are scanning photographs into the computer. Two girls are working together to create interactive "buttons" which link rock songs to their story. Someone calls out "Twenty seconds of silence please so I can tape!" and the room is quiet. View Video Clip (993K)
text transcript
What is going on here? Students are composing interactive adventure stories, using HyperCard software, for others to read on the computer. Martha has been doing this project with her English classes for the past three years. She starts the three-week unit by showing her students stories composed by previous classes. After her students read these stories, they are eager to get started. Students begin their projects by forming groups and brainstorming story topics and plots. These often refect their interests and concerns music, dating, parties, and bizarre (and sometimes gory) events. Once they have formulated a basic "plot plan," groups begin writing. Each story includes points at which the reader is asked to make a choice between two actions like "go to Valencia's" or "go to drug store." Each choice leads the reader down a separate story path.
