From the Back Cover:

Reflecting Ron Lunsford and Bill Bridges' fifty years of combined teaching experience, The Longwood Guide to Writing is among the most accessible, up-to-date, and authoritative rhetorical guides to writing. A three-chapter sequence at the beginning of the text details strategies for the writing process, from generating ideas to shaping those ideas to rewriting. The invention chapter provides an extraordinary variety of prewriting strategies-some of them unique to this book-while the revision chapter addresses both paragraph-level and global revision. A chapter on responding to readings strengthens reading skills both as a means of generating ideas for writing and as a way to become more critical readers of their own writing and that of their peers. Research and writing with resources, essay writing and writing portfolios are each covered in their own comprehensive chapters. The Second Edition features an expanded emphasis on the Internet, and twelve new professional essays. For those interested in developing their reading, writing and critical thinking skills.
