Overview

The author passionately believes that everyone can improve as a writer, a conviction earned through twenty years of empowering young writers. Writing Well in School and Beyond: A Guidebook for College Freshmen and High School Seniors distills ideas that have worked well over the years to help both college and high school students develop their writing abilities. It explains in an accessible way the keys to writing well, providing valuable insight into the fundamentals of the writing process and seventy incisive pieces of advice. Pitched in a familiar and breezy voice, it is packed with important suggestions that can help turn disaffected or unsure students into avid revisers. A student reading this guidebook will be encouraged by realizing that writing is not a magical gift some people have and others don't, but a skill she or he can develop. The book is a handy resource to help teachers, schools and school districts foster writing across the curriculum as promoted by the Common Core standards. Likewise, it can help colleges and universities promote and reinforce a shared understanding among students and faculty that writing is thinking and that revision is the heart of the writing process.
