    tration of a writer doubling the length of an essay, then cutting it by three-quarters.
  • Provides students with practical strategies for revision, eliminating anxiety around the revision process.

  • Examples of both professional and student writing, as well as interviews with writers, from which the student can learn and model his/her own work are integrated throughout.
  • NEW! Chapter 1,"Rewrite Before Rewriting," is a new chapter emphasizing the way experienced writers plan and rehearse prior to writing.
  • NEW! Chapter 2,"How to Get the Writing Done: Tricks of the Writer's Trade," an expansion of the popular section from the previous edition, takes students into the workshop of an experienced writer and makes practical suggestions for accomplishing the task at hand.
  • NEW! Chapter 3, "Reading for Revision" has been moved to the beginning of the book so that students have instruction in the active reading that is essential when they are making meaning rather than decoding someone elses.
  • NEW! Chapter 4, "Rewrite to Focus," emphasizes revision as a discovery technique to find the unintended or unexpected interpretations of the writer's work.
  • NEW! A revised Chapter 5,"Rewrite with Genre," (formerly "Rewrite for Form") provides a new section on the essential narrative.
