Writer's Web

Welcome to the Writer's Web Online Handbook!

About us: Writer's Web is a free, public-access handbook designed & maintained by Dr. Joe Essid, University of Richmond. This iteration of the site is not officially affiliated with the university. It is used for testing content as we develop new materials.  Any concerns about content should come directly to Joe Essid, at joe.essid@gmail.com.

Accessibility: We are currently testing all pages to be screen-reader friendly. Contact Joe Essid if you have advice for improving this aspect of the handbook.

Acknowledgments: This site was made possible by the hard work of our Writing Consultants, the faculty they interviewed, and the student designers who assisted Joe Essid in revising & expanding our content. Special thanks to Kathleen Lietzau (class of 2010), who revised the entire site in May-July 2010 and Nellie Searle and Madeline Smedley (class of 2016) who proofread and revised the site in 2014-15. Griffin Myers consolidated old pages and made corrections to others in 2018.
