Writing To Be Read. Revised Second Edition.
Macrorie, Ken
The free-writing program presented in this book and illustrated with student writing samples emphasizes student writing which is alive and valuable and which is to be read by real persons, who respond. New material in this second edition focuses especially on these points, in three chapters: writing in and for a group of helping commenters (writers' third-best resource after their own experiences and writing skills), letting the subject choose the writer, and suggestions for teachers. A chapter on writing poems is also new in this edition. The other chapters discuss language, writing freely, good writing, tightening, deceiving oneself, fabulous realities, people talking, writing case histories, repeating, remembering childhood, revising and sharpening, creating form, playing with words, keeping a journal, writing secondhand, controlling sound, writing reports and columns, writing indirectly, the order of words, and observing conventions.
