Excerpt from Show

Lacy Manship, UNC Charlotte Writing Project , shares what NWP Connect is at her site:

Connect creates a sense of a location, you know, online; a gathering place where people can—kind of like our local coffee shop that a lot of our TCs hang out to write—it's kind of a place to hang out, share stuff, documents, jot some things out, maybe do some writing. And on Connect all these communities of people thinking about similar things, having similar interests, having similar needs, similar kinds of work—it's a place to kind of bring all that together.
