Writers Junction

Boulevard des Desseins

The Boulevard des Desseins is a project dedicated to collaborative writing. It provides a supportive environment at LinguaMOO for writers, particularly those interested in collaborative writing online. Its four goals include:

1) the creation of a place where writers may meet and chat as well as discuss writing and develop collaborative writing projects;

2) the development of collaborative writing projects in LinguaMOO that invite the participation both of writers who are unfamiliar with MOOing and of MOOers who have not explored creative collaborative writing;

3) the creation of a resource base for creative writing in MOOs and for training writers to MOO;

4) the development and integration of collaborative writing projects across both webpages and a MOO environment, so that a) webpage-based projects can take advantage of the facilities of a MOO, and b) MOO writing projects can have a presence, a platform that will give them greater visibility on the Internet (outside of the specific MOO).
