August 28 – What is Digital Writing

This free write was a part of my in class introduction to ENGL 307.



Digital writing is writing that is produced digitally such as blogs, online newspapers, or discussion boards.  I participate mainly in blogs, typing papers, and discussion boards for school, but for personal use I use emails as a way to communicate with others.  I also participate in digital writing when using social networks such as Facebook or Twitter.

Other forms of digital writing:

Photo editing

Documenting medical records at work

Commenting on webpages

Text messaging


Developing program code
