Overview

The Writing Coach walks writers through the writing process--from planning, organizing, and writing strategies applied to long and short documents, through editing and revising final drafts. It replaces the traditional how-to texts for writing reports, memos, and letters with a decision-making process that taps the critical thinking skills and experience of adult learners. The Writing Coach is ideal for use as the complete notebook for a short seminar or as the process-based foundation for a longer course that includes participants' writing samples.
