This innovative rhetoric/reader encourages writers to investigate rhetorical, creative, critical, and cultural approaches to reading in order to enrich their writing.

Offering students an invitation to read from different perspectives, this approach hones students' writing in their composition courses and beyond by helping them explore the complicated interactions between writers, readers, and texts. Six flexible "Writing Workshops" reinforce chapter concepts and follow a paper drafting sequence.
