to a brand-new site called Writing in

Hello, 602 Classmates!

It’s me, Helen. :-)  I’ve made this website for the first Collaborative Exploration in CCT-602*, which you have all completed already.  The “Creativity” tab, in particular, will provide tips for writers and others interested in increasing their creativity.

Note that at the time of this writing, the site and the Creativity tab are still “works in progress.”

I look forward to your Plus-Delta feedback in class.  Also feel free to add comments on these pages, including general impressions, practical feedback on the content and the design, or any random thoughts, now or in the future. Please don’t be shy; I truly crave constructive feedback on my work, especially while in the early stages.

Thanks, and enjoy!
