Moving your writing class online

Crowd-sourced resources for writing instructors and writing program administrators. Please add as you or your program develop materials!



As has been said many times, this is not a moment in which you can expect to teach a fully realized online course. Think about your course goals and what might be reasonably possible in this format and within your and your students’ resources. ETA: Also, please note that many of these materials are being created in a crisis and might not wholly represent the values of the program, author, organization, etc.
