I heard from one of my ex-students (hi again, Gully) a few days ago when she left me a comment on this blog. I’m fairly new to blogging, but finally couldn’t resist the temptation to use this terrific way of sharing writing and keeping in touch.
I teach writing classes (business and creative) online via ed2go.com to around 3800 students per year. The online setting has proven to be quite a personal way to learn together—lots of one-on-one interaction with the students plus the wonderful attention and support everyone gets from classmates.
Since my online classes are only six weeks long, I get to know students quickly, but then lose sight of them when class is over. I am contractually bound not to share my contact information with students while they are in class, but if they find their way to my blog on their own, that’s fine.
So if you’re an ex-student with news about your writing—whether on the job, for personal pleasure, or for publication—share a comment here. How is your writing coming? –Ann
