¶ 1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 Update: While the six-week open peer review phase ended on October 30th, 2013 with over 1,000 comments, readers may continue to post comments while the editorial team evaluates essays and invites selected authors to revise and resubmit for the final manuscript. This freely accessible scholarly book in-progress explores why online writing matters for liberal arts education and illustrates how students and faculty engage in this work, with digital examples and tutorials. Based on essays from twenty-five contributors, this volume responds to current debates over massive online courses by arguing for the thoughtful integration of web-based authoring, annotating, editing, and publishing tools into what the liberal arts do best: teaching writing and clearer thinking across the curriculum.

In addition, four expert reviewers have been commissioned by Michigan Publishing to publicly post their comments. Feedback from all participants will assist authors in revising their essays and the editorial team in making selections for the final manuscript. The completed work will be published in 2014 under the University of Michigan’s new Maize Books imprint, both in paper (for sale) and online (for free). Financial support for this project has been provided by the Center for Teaching and Learning at Trinity College, and also by the Trinity Institute for Interdisciplinary Studies.
