Featured Group:  Words Have Lives


This week we’re featuring a valuable group that’s a valuable resource for writers, the group Words Have Lives, which you can see here.  As its creators note, it’s “A composition and grammar source for students who want to write stronger papers. While topics here are produced in direct response to class discussions and interactions with students regarding specific writing concerns, they also are relevant to all students wishing to understand how to fix their own writing and gain a sense of how their writing questions are shared with others going through the same learning process.”
