Richards (education, U. of South Florida), Miller (writing, U, of Arizona) and their contributors focus on real people as they write, preferring to think of writing as a process of personal discovery. Their topics, punctuated by personal reflections, are practical as well as theoretical and include the types and purposes of academic writing, the various approaches and outcomes of invention, including free writing, starting by preparing the draft, thinking of revising as the real beginning of the writing process, editing, and integrating the personal and the professional, including working with a writing group.
