About Me and this Site

This site was originally set up as a companion to the then-recently released book Developing Writers: Teaching and Learning in the Digital Age written with Richard Andrews of the London Institute of Education.

Once the proofs were done and the press began to run, I had felt a loss. Among other things in that book, we discussed the difference between composition for the page and composition for the screen (and the networked screen). Composition for the page–at some point–dies. I wanted a place to keep the conversation I hoped was sparked from the “pages” of our book alive and well. What better way to do that than to create a companion “networked screen” with all its dynamic and interactive affordances?
