Once you join the wiki by answering my invitation, if you would indulge me, in order to get to know one another and get a feel for how the wiki works, please post a brief personal sketch on the Profiles page.

For your assignments, I recommend not composing on wiki pages. With exceptions — a brief profile, response or edit — please compose your work in your word processing program, save it, and paste it into the wiki. When in use, a page locks out other users until the writer finishes and saves changes. Please keep this protocol in mind when considering last-minute posts. If the wiki gives you any trouble, contact me
