Writing with Power is a guide for the student writing an essay, the professional writer working on a story, or the manager writing a memo for a tight deadline. As Elbow explains, 'Writing with power doesn't just mean getting power over readers. It means getting power over yourself and over the writing process.' For the second edition, Elbow has written a new introduction in which he discusses in detail the 'mysterious' dimensions of 'Writing with Power' - voice, quality and bad writing, wrongness and felt sense, and sharing written work with others.
