Summary

Technical Writing is a comprehensive, flexible, and accessible introduction to technical and professional communication. Rhetorical principles are explained, illustrated, and applied to an array of assignments, from brief memos and summaries to formal reports and proposals. To help students develop awareness of audiences and accountability, collaborative projects simulate the writing demands that are typical throughout college and on the job.
