Working Words is a multigenre introduction to creative writing. Designed for beginning writers, the text focuses initially on the process of creative writing before turning to genre distinctions and end products. Abundant exercises, student writing samples for analysis, and activities and suggestions for workshop settings enable students to gain the greatest possible writing fluency and to become more demanding and competent readers of their own and others’ writing.
