Resources for Supporting an Online Writing Community

Summary:

For a team interested in developing and supporting an online writing community, this introduction to the NWP's former E-Anthology describes the role of responding to writing in developing community, gives helpful hints about responding online, offers a response protocol, and provides an example of a productive exchange between responders, commenters, and the writer. In addition, the information would work equally well to support face-to-face writing response groups.
