  How to contribute new media writing

Have you produced a story that can only be read on the Web? Have you done some writing that can't be printed out because it is full of hyperlinks or random bits or animation? If so, tell us about it!

We aim to provide ways in which everyone can contribute uniquely web-based writing. The Planet of Dreams template for classes was the first - it comes with full teachers' notes and support and requires no knowledge of HTML. The second template, Adventure Island, is being launched in November 2004. It was produced by Simon Widdowson, our Digital Teacher-in-Residence, as part of the Writers For The Future in The Classroom project.

If you are a teacher or group leader who would like to create a web-based project that takes advantage of new technology, please get in touch and we will do what we can to help you.

 Planet of Dreams

The first contribution came from Tabubil International School in Papua New Guinea. More are being added all the time.
