An accessible, practical, and pedagogically rich modes-based rhetoric/reader/handbook presenting the writing process as a series of critical thinking decisions about audience and purpose.   

Widely admired for its clear, readable style, The Writing Process is a concise guide that combines accessible coverage of the writing process, complete discussions and models of the rhetorical modes, a multi-chapter section on the research process, a brief handbook, and a section focusing on special issues in writing (writing at work and writing essay exams). Focusing on writing as decision-making, the text offers practice in analyzing the unique rhetorical demands of each writing situation by showing how considerations of audience and purpose influence writing. A wealth of student samples in various draft stages and a wide variety of professional readings illustrate the writing strategies.
