Overview

The second edition of College Writing is based on the premise that writing is a varied and imaginative process, not a rigid adherence to a set of conventions. Like the original text, it continually exhorts students to find and celebrate their own voice. Indeed, it is this affirmation of individual creativity that sets College Writing apart from other process-oriented rhetorics. Among the book's new features are an up-to-date electronic reference section, expanded discussions on research writing strategies, new presentations on argumentative and interpretive writing, and a review of creative revision techniques.
