A progressive alternative to traditional handbooks, this compact reference offers concise yet thorough coverage of all writing issues, with material uniquely organized around the stages of the writing process. Organized around planning drafting, revising, editing, and researching; this book covers traditional topics, such as grammar, punctuation, and mechanics as “editing” choices writers make to effectively communicate with their readers. The focus here is not on arbitrary rules, but on communicating powerfully through good writing and to improving that communication. The book’s abundant hand-edited examples illustrate how writers revise and edit by showing a problem and its solution at a single glance. The book also covers research early in the writing process as an integral part of every type of writing and presents both field research and library research. Finally, it addresses computers and the writing process in a special section with valuable word-processing tips that show how computers can aid writers at every stage of the writing process. The second edition of The College Writer’s Reference has been revised to include an expanded and up-to-date discussion of Internet research and documentation convention in both MLA and APA formats as well as new writing samples. An essential reference for every writer.
