Summary

Widely admired for its clear, readable style, The Writing Process is a concise guide that combines accessible coverage of the writing process, complete discussions and models of the rhetorical modes, a chapter on the research process, and a brief handbook. Focusing on writing as decision-making, the text offers practice in analyzing the unique rhetorical demands of each writing situation by showing how considerations of audience and purpose influence writing. A wealth of student samples in various draft stages and a strong collection of professional readings-essays, fiction, poetry, memoirs, and cartoons-illustrate the writing strategies.
