In conjunction with the launch of the BCRW Blog, this evening workshop will familiarize Barnard students with the medium of blogging–providing tools, rules, and examples to encourage participants to contribute their voices to the Blogosphere. It will cover the general guidelines of blog style and content by deconstructing the details of an effective post, discussing the importance of personal tone, and outlining methods for quoting, linking, and connecting to current events. The workshop will also touch on the platforms, outlets, and online resources available to student bloggers, encouraging blogging as an avenue for feminist writing, online activism, and social change.
