If a thousand students typed at a thousand computers for a thousand hours, would they write a decent story?
Regardless, it would be an experience worth reading.
www.1000keyboards.com is a new website that offers pupils an extension of, and extended audience for, their creative writing. While not completely school-safe, I have offered it with a disclaimer for some particularly gifted students.
Watch this space!
Update: this website is no longer available. The idea, however, is still enticing.
