Web Communities

making poetry and teaching materials available online

meeting students, making a place for them

listserv, blog

On the earlier reviewing panel we discussed the gift economy of literature, of the necessity of approaching literature in different ways -- pleasure, analysis, teaching, performance, publishing -- so that there is a community

I worked my way through writing school in desktop publishing. After I graduated, in order to be able to teach, I developed software end user training curricula, training games, and early intranet sites for teaching materials. I became the manager and lead developer for giant intranets and internet-based business applications and paid off my writing school loans.

I was also an AOL poetry tutor -- Janet Holmes at Boise State / Ahsahta Press was a CompuServe poetry tutor at about the same time --

I created the first online poetry workshop for the UCLA Exntesion Writers' Program. I still teach mostly online & of course try to develop my courses -- I decided that all or most of the materials of an online course should be available online, and that the seven learning styles should be accomodated as much as possible in this reading and writing intensive environment, and those decisions led to my project of scanning and uploading modernist poetry in the public domain that is not already online.

But, as poets do, I was ultimately trying to create a space for my own writing.
