Writing Alone and With Others

by Peter Elbow Pat Schneider

For more than a quarter of a century, Pat Schneider has helped writers find and liberate their true voices. She has taught all kinds--the award winning, the struggling, and those who have been silenced by poverty and hardship. Her innovative methods have worked in classrooms from elementary to graduate level, in jail cells and public housing projects, in convents and seminaries, in youth at-risk programs, and with groups of the terminally ill. Now, in Writing Alone and with Others, Schneider's acclaimed methods are available in a single, well-organized, and highly readable volume. The first part of the book guides the reader through the perils of the solitary writing life: fear, writer's block, and the bad habits of the internal critic. In the second section, Schneider describes the Amherst Writers and Artists workshop method, widely used across the U. S. and abroad. Chapters on fiction and poetry address matters of technique and point to further resources, while more than a hundred writing exercises offer specific ways to jumpstart the blocked and stretch the rut-stuck. Schneider's innovative teaching method will refresh the experienced writer and encourage the beginner. Her book is the essential owner's manual for the writer's voice.

Writing Analytically (6th Edition)

by David Rosenwasser Jill Stephen

Rosenwasser and Stephen (Muhlenberg College, Allentown, PA) show undergraduate students in first-year writing courses, as well as those in more advanced writing-intensive courses in various subjects, how to learn to analyze information and use writing to discover and develop ideas. They explain how to become more observant and push observations to implications and conclusions; use evidence, evolve claims, and converse with sources to write analytical papers; and understand organization, disciplinary formats, introductions and conclusions, and grammar and style. Writing exercises that can be applied to print and visual, text-based, and experiential materials are included, as are tips from professors on differences in disciplines other than English, rhetoric, or composition. This edition has a new introductory chapter previewing key topics, more examples, and more lists and rationales. It has two toolkit chapters on analytical methods instead of one, some reorganization and reformatting, more description of discipline-specific writing (especially the natural and social sciences), and new material in chapters on form. It has new sections on Rogerian argument, practical reasoning, and figurative logic, and expanded treatment of the four documentation styles. It clarifies step-by-step instructions, uncovering assumptions, and the method of looking for patterns of repetition and contrast. Another edition of the book includes readings.
