Dear Linguist members,
Thanks for all the positive feedback to the idea of sharing some of the writing submissions. We have decided to use our community blog for this. This blog now has a new URL. I have posted some writing samples. Please go and have a look at
When I post I will only select corrected writing samples. I will not identify who wrote them. I will not use any writing that I think is too personal or confidential.
You can also post your own writing samples directly on the site yourselves. You can identify yourselves if you want or just post without leaving your name. You can post writing samples before or after correction. It is up to you. If you do not want me to select your corrected writing samples and post them, please let me know.
In addition to copying and pasting your writing samples, you can also put other comments on the site if you want. If you are interested in posting on our community blog, please let us know and we will set you up.
In the future I hope to record some conversations with some of you on Skype and then put them up on the site.
This is a new program and we welcome your ideas. You will be hearing more from us.
Meanwhile, let me know your views.
