30 days of writing ideas #3: A request to share a true story based on Internet-sharing from Alan Levine

Submitted by Fiona Beal


If you are a South African teacher reading this we would like to tell you about a writing opportunity and a free online writing course that is coming up with SchoolNetSA  as part of the amazing African Storybook project and website that is being developed for Africa.

Alan Levine is someone I have come to appreciate when it comes to writing ideas – in fact I would call him a digital writing guru! His two wikis, Cogdogroo (found at http://cogdogroo.wikispaces.com) and 50+ Web2 ways to tell a story found at http://50ways.wikispaces.com/  give loads of wonderful ideas for writing.

I will be building a new collection at  http://cogdogblog.com/stuff/truestori… – and if you have one to share, either make it a video response here or submit a URL for a video to http://bit.ly/truestories13.”
