Show synopsis For the past twenty years, THE WRITER'S WORKPLACE has served the needs of half a million two-year and four-year students as they have worked their way toward rewarding careers in many fields. John Scarry and Sandra Scarry present writing instruction in a clear and manageable form, with step-by-step explanations to help build and maintain students' confidence in their writing. The result of many years of classroom teaching and research, this comprehensive and time-tested resource reflects the authors' understanding that every student is unique, with different backgrounds and interests that must be accounted for as they engage in the writing process. In addition, this new edition offers instructors the opportunity to customize their own version of the book by including or excluding any sections that they do or do not teach in their course-making this a text that reflects not only the students' needs and experiences, but their instructor's as well.
