The Story Project: An Online Site for Reading and Sharing.
Padgett Wheeler, Sally
This paper describes an online publishing site at Georgia Perimeter College called "The Story Project." The Web site contains more than 60 stories written by faculty members, students, administrators, staff, family, and friends, and serves to encourage student writing, create a community of writers, celebrate common and diverse past experiences, preserve the past, and encourage leisure reading. The stories range from school-related experiences to childhood adventures, travel stories to romantic recounts, sports stories, and immigration experiences. There are also military and civil rights categories, and the college hopes to expand and add more current history categories. Advantages of the Project include exposure to the past through real-life accounts and the educational opportunities inherent in having students publish their work. The College benefits from the stories by identifying potential subjects for articles in one of the College's publications, by celebrating the school's common and diverse experiences and heritage, through an opportunity to involve alumni and friends, and by bringing the College together for a unified goal and experience. The paper contains several excerpts from stories published in Georgia Perimeter College's "The Story Project." (CB)
