Writing Papers in Collegeprovides clear, concise guidance on a comprehensive range of composition topics–writing, research, and grammar–in a portable size and at a low price.

Writing Papers in College guides students through all stages of the writing process–while also offering essential organizational strategies–using brief instruction that delivers just enough detail to help students be effective writers.  Rather than weigh students down with an overly complicated presentation or belabored concepts, Writing Papers keeps advice short and sweet so that students spend less time reading about writing and more time focusing on their own work.

The text focuses on critical research issues and the grammar concerns students encounter most frequently:  research instruction includes tips for integrating source material using quotation and paraphrase as well as guidelines for citing sources in MLA and APA styles, and a mini grammar “handbook” focuses on essential grammar and common errors. 

The pocket size and low price of Writing Papers in College are ideal for students who want a quick reference on the nuts and bolts of writing and for instructors who want flexibility in their course design.
