AbstractThis paper describes the use of live online journals established by the course providers to create an authentic writing environment for learners to work within. A range of six journals provides learners with choices of writing topics and audiences, and opportunities to learn about audience awareness and genre. Approximately 600 Year 2 university students write an article for one of these journals each year as part of their ESP course. In addition to being graded for the course, the best articles are submitted to the journal editors who decide independently which to publish. Maintaining high but achievable standards produces a challenging but accessible target and an authentic writing environment as well as an additional 'qualification' for the cv of those who are successfully published.
