For Your STEP Writing Class

If you are in Chris Dean's STEP Writing class, then you are at a "home" you have in cyberspace.

This page has important links to your syllabus, if you lose the paper copy I give you, materials we will be using in class, and websites that will be part of your work inside and outside of class. If you miss a class, contact a classmate, look at this page, and email me as needed.

Again, welcome, and if you need to contact me, then email me at cdean@writing.ucsb.edu. I look forward to working with you --both face-to-face and in cyberspace.
