[EXECUTIVE SUMMARY]
“Practice is always dynamic, arising as a way to mediate between processes and the circumstances inwhich they are enacted. The reason to study practice is to understand how this dynamic mediation takesplace.”~ Dourish, 2001 What follows are studies of embodied, everyday practices—public, sociotechnical writing practices.This collaborative white paper includes four brief qualitative case studies— 
microstudies
 —from researchersin the Rhetoric and Composition doctoral program and the Professional Writing + Emerging Mediaundergraduate program at Ball State University.One of the primary aims of these microstudies is to increase attention to the ways in which writing technologies are situated in the lived practices of the everyday—in web browsers, on smart phones, and via SMS. All of the studies take a microanalytical approach to examine a specic writing technology:microblogging. Looking 
at 
rather than
through
this technology (Haas, 1996), we examine individual,particular cases to learn more about the ways that writing and/as technology function(s) in peoples’everyday lives. Our ndings shed light on the specic ways that users position themselves online—in theclassroom, in relationships, and in the world. Deliberately small in scale, these studies introduce a starting point for further research into pervasive forms of writing work, hopefully raising some interesting questions for ongoing scholarship of dynamic mediation in practice.
