The spirit of THE WRITER'S WAY remains in the ninth edition, as do its two core principles: (1) good writing begins when writers know their audience and write for the right reasons; and (2) knowing their audience and having good reasons to write will teach users everything they need to know about technique. Based on a "whole language approach," THE WRITER'S WAY is a dynamic, process-centered paperback rhetoric with readings. While this book is intended to be used in a classroom, it's very much based on the concept that there is little difference between writing in school and writing in the "real world." Offering frank advice in a supportive, encouraging tone, the authors lead readers step by step through the writing process, from pre-writing to polishing the final draft.

"The best book I've found for teaching authentic writing processes and developing independent writers."
"It provides excellent coverage of the main issues and concerns for students in their learning to write. It does so in a clear and personable way. It's a user-friendly text not cluttered by a lot of graphics and inserts or excessive content like so many comp texts."
