Writing in Action provides a step-by-step, practical guide to the process of writing, covering creative writing such as fiction, poetry and drama as well as autobiographical writing and the writing of reports and essays. Because this is a book about process rather than product, Writing in Action also looks at the practice of adaptation and editing. It shows new writers how to get started, develops the confidence of more experienced writers, encourages experimentation and creativity, stimulates critical awareness through inclusion of illustrative texts and encourages writing as a skill as well as an art form. Writing in Action offers many practical suggestions and self-evaluation exercises, as well as invaluable tips on style, sentence structure, punctuation and vocabulary.
