I’m sharing three highlights from openculture.com, a leading provider of open educational resources. More to come in the future.
1. http://www.openculture.com/ Scroll to Writing Tips in the inner right column. Guidance from the list of fair-to-middlin’ writers [;->] below is available.
- Ernest Hemingway
- F. Scott Fitzgerald
- Stephen King
- Ray Bradbury
- William Zinsser
- Kurt Vonnegut
- Toni Morrison
- Edgar Allan Poe
- Margaret Atwood
- David Ogilvy
- John Steinbeck
- Billy Wilder
There is a section on journalism and writing, including this iTunes-based creative writing master class. I figure even if you drop in at your leisure, mug of coffee in hand…
- No turning heads and ensuing glares from students or teacher. [Even your inevitable coffee spills will go unnoticed.]
- Tons to learn in convenient time chunks.
Ebooks from Neil Gaiman, Phillip Dick, David Foster Wallace, and John Muir, as well as some struggling amateurs ;-> like Faulkner, Fitzgerald, and Shakespeare. Also, consider scrolling down to the bottom to the ‘Assorted Texts’ section.
