Real Audiences-Worldwide: A Case Study of the Impact of WWW Publication on a Child Writer's Development.
Keiner, Judy
This paper presents a case study of a young writer, a girl aged between 9 and 10 over the 6-month period analyzed. The writer accessed KidPub, a World Wide Web site that accepts stories submitted by or on behalf of children and young people under the age of 16 and publishes them, giving each story its own Web page. With the help of a mentor, the writer published a story via this Web site. The paper discusses the process of engaging the writer through tracking how many times her story was read, as well as reading and responding to reader correspondence. Examples of e-mail correspondence are included. (DLS)
