Jim Lerman's curator insight, January 28, 2013 2:20 PM

This is a wonderful collection of writing tools (and multimedia tools for writing) as well as for publishing. Don't be deceived by the seeming elementary-level look of these tools. Many of them are quite sophisticated and can by used by and for writers/readers of all ages. Do spend time going through Walker's entire wiki; this is clearly a labor of love from an accomplished educator.
