Create, Collate, & Curate an Enlightened Web Footprint.
Writers write best about what they know best. The Crafted Word Digital Portfolio Course is designed to help you create a compelling a dynamic and compelling online digital footprint centered around your interests and passions. I will guide you in creating, curating, and sustaining an enlightened web presence by developing (or continuing to curate) a Weebly-based digital portfolio to share and showcase a range of writing pieces and multi-media content--including an active blog, podcasts, photo galleries, and video documentaries and essays that will serve as a compelling digital portfolio of your writing pieces, travelogues, artistic endeavors, and personal interests, so when that time comes and someone important asks you what separates you from the rest of the pack, you will have something rich and compelling to show them! And trust me: that time is coming soon.

My summer writing community will offer six separate weekly projects to incorporate into your blogs and portfolios. Each project will help bring your portfolios to a deeper, more interactive, and more interesting place. I will give you weekly feedback on the development of your individual portfolio as well as regular feedback on your more daily journal postings.
