Pulitzer Prize winning author Donald M. Murray takes a lively and inspiring approach to writing and revision that does not condescend but invites the student into the writer s studio. This revision guide covers the entire writing process and is inexpensive enough to supplement any writing course.
In this revision of the 1998 edition, Murray (emeritus, English, U. of New Hampshire) guides students in the "getting the words right" process from writing to rewrite to letting go. A new chapter treats reading writing in process. Includes exercises, and interviews with and case histories of published writers and students. First published in 1991. Annotation c.
