The definitive guide to polishing your prose from veteran editor Jan Venolia.
Everyone knows that writing can be improved by the simple process of reviewing, editing, and rewriting, but many struggle with how to go about critiquing their own work—be it a letter to a friend, an important business document, or an academic essay. Fortunately, help is at hand in Rewrite Right! The skills needed to revise your work are surprisingly easy to learn and a cinch to incorporate into everyday writing routines. This practical guide describes in clear, direct language how to effectively rewrite a report, letter, essay, or article, so that writers of all levels can improve the quality of their work and harness the power of language.
It is of utmost importance that believers carry the most important message, the gospel, into the world. To do that, a proper use of language is necessary. God gave the Scriptures through words, and to communicate His Word, the Christian must use words. Therefore, a proper use of language, both spoken and written, must be of concern especially for the person training for Christian service. Secondarily, the examples used in this text provide a Christ-centered basis for interacting with the material. Major grammar areas that relate to good writing are the focus of the opening chapters with each chapter having exercises for the student to complete. The second section of the text focuses on sound principles of composition, giving students practice in various essay styles as well as research papers and form.
Concepts and Choices is a new approach to teaching writing, one that incorporates recognized concepts and techniques with some neglected ones and some entirely new ones. The assumption is made that extensive practice without attending to such concepts provides nothing more for students than the opportunity for frequent repetition of error. Therefore, this book calls for smaller, manageable units of instruction. In addition, the so-called "process" model of writing used extensively by teachers today has emphasized the "discovery" of arguments (neglecting almost entirely descriptive/narrative writing) at the expense of more important elements, including the quality of content. Writing is a complex activity that cannot be reduced to an analogy in which it is compared to an assembly line at a factory. Good writing indeed requires a rigorous apprenticeship, one that goes beyond a few hours a day in a classroom. This book attempts to provide a guide to good writing.
