Is there such a place? Or would anyone like to be part of such a thing?


I'm just thinking of my own DS10 - he enjoys writing, but much moreso when he has a kid audience and feedback (not just mom). I've noticed how much inspiration it gives him to see how and what other kids write, and wonder if there is a way to do this online.


For instance, starting a Killgallon-style imitation thread, where the first post could be an imitation assignment, and the kids could post their imitations below. It would be fun, and they could learn from each other.


Another idea would be starting a thread for a particular assignment of a curriculum, like Week 18 of Writing With Skill (not sure what that assignment even is, just picking it for an example).


Thoughts? Anyone have kids who would be interested in doing this sort of thing?
