Our primary goal is to provide the resources and community students need to improve their writing, particularly students enrolled in courses that require college-level writing. We aspire to be a "commons-based peer production" community. By this we mean that we hope that crowds of people--from experts such as professors and professional writers to undergraduate students--can collaborate with us to revise the pages we've already written as well as write new pages. By working collaboratively, we are hopeful that we can develop a new kind of writing textbook, a textbook not written by a single author in the old-school way but by us, by a crowd of people out there who think we need a new kind of writing text, one that is more interactive.
