After nearly five years after the original, I’ve updated my college essay writing handbook. Updates include MLA style of documentation, new student models, and information about the rhetorical situation.
STRUCTURES: THE RELUCTANT WRITER’S GUIDE TO COLLEGE ESSAYS, 2ND EDITION, is a freshman composition handbook for those who dislike writing essays. Filled with straightforward information, easy-to-follow outlines, and essay examples, STRUCTURES, 2ND EDITION, demystifies college-level essay writing and gives the reluctant writer support and confidence in a life skill that isn’t always pleasant but is always necessary.
