The Writer’s Practice

John Warner

After more than two decades teaching college-level writing following the most established and well-regarded practices, writer, editor, and educator John Warner knew we could do better. Drawing on his classroom experience and the most persuasive research in contemporary composition studies, he devised an innovative new framework- a step-by-step method that moves the student through a series of writing problems, an organic, bottom-up writing process that exposes and acculturates them to the ways writers work in the world.

The time is right for this new and groundbreaking approach. The most popular books on composition take a formalistic view, utilizing  templates  in order to mimic the sorts of rhetorical moves academics make. While this is a valuable element of a writing education, there is room for something that speaks more broadly. The Writer’s Practice invites students and novice writers into an intellectually engaging, active learning process that prepares them for a wider range of academic and real-world writing and allows them to become invested and engaged in their own work.
