Written in a friendly writer-to-writer tone, this brief, no-nonsense, non-threatening, process-oriented rhetoric helps users improve their writing abilities by showing them that writing well is a matter of making wise "choices" rather than following formulaic rules. Features an abundance of writing samples that illustrate each step of the writing process, and interviews with those involved in learning the writing process. Covers rhetorical issues of audience, purpose and voice as well as strategies for starting, researching (field, library, and Internet), revising, editing, and publishing writing--with detailed information on six types of essays. Provides current documentation guidelines. For anyone interested in improving their writing skills.
