Can a writing textbook inform and entertain? Can a very brief rhetoric also function as a stand-alone guide to college writing? Yes and yes. Speaking of Writing is a concise yet comprehensive rhetoric with readings. Informed by scholarship in Writing Studies, this book follows four college students from diverse backgrounds as they face the challenges of reading, writing, and critical thinking in first-year writing and across the disciplines. Each chapter engages students in relatable, often humorous scenarios that focus on key challenges. Through its story-based approach, Speaking of Writing enacts student-centered and process-based pedagogy, showing students learning to address fundamental questions: How can I apply my own strategies for success to new assignments? How can I maintain my own voice when asked to compose in an academic style? What do college professors mean by a “thesis,” and how is this different from what my high-school teachers meant? Why is this argument weak, and how can I make it stronger? The book’s narrative vividly dramatizes a draft-and-revision process that includes instructor feedback, peer review, and careful research.

This book is a collection of nonfiction essays by Richard Maibaum commenting and reflecting on his thoughts about Broadway and Hollywood, particularly ideas about writing, story development, and the significance of characters. It reflects forty years of thinking on the subject, from the late 1940s through late 1980s, shortly before his passing. It is the closest thing to a textbook that a writer of his stature and, as busy as he always was, could produce, and he always liked interactions with schools and eager people with aspiring writing talent. Never a gossip or tell all about others, he was interested in conveying what he knew about how to write and how to tell a story; that’s what he felt truly important when talking about Broadway or Hollywood.

The Wild Garden" "is both an autobiographical essay on the creative process and a remarkable personal account of the circumstances surrounding the nervous crisis that impelled Angus Wilson to become a writer at the age of thirty-six. Examining specific incidents, characters, places and recurring symbols in his life and work, notably the wild garden itself, Wilson analyses the links between his own life crisis and the theme of liberation by self-realization that was to be central to all his novels. "" ""'The Wild Garden is, quite simply, one of the finest accounts of the creative process by a recent writer that I know. Here Angus Wilson looks at the springs of writing in a way that all writers can recognize, and all readers appreciate as a way into the brilliant, discovering imagination that lay behind his major novels.' "Malcolm Bradbury"
