Final Portfolio and presentations due December 12th at 7pm

We will meet at my home (3118 Kinross) on December 12th at 7pm for brief and informal presentations.

You will be limited to 10 minutes or less to showcase some of your digital texts and briefly explain how these texts help you theorize and define digital writing.
