Abstract/Description: Asterisk* Comics seeks to provide visual and interactive tools through which young adults can develop their writing skills. The website's primary focus is to serve as a medium for instructional materials and to promote writing by marketing it in a new, fresh way. Up to this point, most writing advice offered online takes the form of a textbook pasted unto the web, and this means college and high school students have to weed through protracted explanations to have a simple question answered. Googling for writing instruction can become a tortuous experience for anyone, but Asterisk* Comics seeks to break this tedious trend. Asteriskcomics.org will house the same type of information offered by instructional writing websites, but they will be made available through interactive and visual means. Writing instruction and advice will be conveyed to its audience through comics and illustrated texts. It aspires to house videos and interactive media in the future.
