"The website Figment -- founded in 2010 by Jacob Lewis, a former editor of The New Yorker, and Dana Goodyear, a New Yorker staff writer -- provides a space for students to publish their original writing and receive feedback online. Philadelphia English teacher Meenoo Rami says the site is a "perfect platform" for her students. "It's important for students to know that their work is viewed by more than just their teacher. For my students, the idea that a larger audience is being exposed to their work is important to them," Rami said. "This gives them an authentic reason to write."
