Real Essays with Readings is the essay-level book in Susan Anker’s highly successful series of writing texts that motivate students with their message that writing is an essential skill in college and in real life — and that this skill is achievable. Anker’s advice, examples, and assignments show the relevance of writing to all aspects of students’ lives, and profiles of former students prove that success is attainable. Like all the books in the Anker series, Real Essays presents writing in logical, manageable increments: step-by-step writing guides and a focus on the "four basics" of each mode of writing keep students from becoming overwhelmed. Real Essays maintains its emphasis on what really matters by focusing on the four most serious errors (fragments, run-ons, subject-verb agreement problems, and verb form problems). Real Essays gives students what they need to succeed in college and become stronger academic writers.

About the Author:

SUSAN ANKER (B.A., M.Ed, Boston University) taught English and developmental writing for several years before entering college publishing, where she worked for 18 years: as a sales representative and English/ESL editor at Macmillan Publishing Company; as developmental English/ESL editor, executive editor, and editor in chief at St. Martin’s Press; and as editor in chief for humanities at Houghton Mifflin. Anker’s many years of experience talking and working with hundreds of developmental writing instructors across the country, and developing textbooks that meet the needs of these instructors and their students, have culminated in Real Writing, Real Skills, and Real Essays.
