Publisher Comments:

Essays on Writing explores social and cultural facets of writing as well as practices of writing in a brief, flexible, and inexpensive reader.

 

Designed for instructors who want to keep the discourse in the writing classroom on writing as well as students who want to connect the writing they do in their composition course to literacy outside of the academic environment, Essays on Writing  focuses on such issues as our attitudes toward writing, the impact of technology on writing, and the impact of writing outside academia in business and civic contexts.
