A handbook for writers in 100 pages or less.

This text-embedded-in-a-course addresses how to use a wiki to generate, organize, re-organize writing that will primarily be written in and read on a wiki. The tool shapes the creation: Ask a carpenter, a poet, a painter, a musician. Ask McLuhan. The wiki as a tool for writing changes the way we create and read writing. Just as it is unlike a pencil, pen, typewriter, even wordprocessor, so writing practices that lead to effective production of writing on a wiki are significantly different than those used with other tools.

We're writing this text with the idea that anyone who needs to create writing with or on or for a wiki might find it useful.

We're embedding it as a set of pages in a larger wiki as a matter of ease and experiment.
