Hello, students/teachers of Ellie's Classroom! I am here to inform you that we have moved, and formed a new group called "Our Classroom". We all maintain it, and we want that to reflect in the title. So we're building it from the ground up, and our lessons will expand past grammar to writing in general. Feel free to come and join! We will help you in any way we can! Stay in school! Here's the link to the new group! http://figment.com/groups/33943-Our-Classroom -Miss Kate

Hey! I just started a group called The Long Haul. It's a group to help writers who have trouble with plot, character development, and even just getting the ideas down on paper. There's contests and prompts, too, and a cover shop. Only, it's not seeing much activity since it's so new. I was wondering if you'd maybe like to join...?
