Writing for College and Beyond
Writing for College and Beyond is a new kind of first-year writing text, one that emphasizes connections between the writing students do in typical English composition classes and their future business and professional careers. It covers writing commonly taught in first year writing courses such as summary, synthesis, analysis, and argument writing as well as MLA and APA documentation styles. It’s also fully customizable for departmental or group orders.
Many thanks to the website Romantic Circles Reviews and Receptions for inviting me to guest post to their blog about my Rock and Romanticism titles, and many thanks to Suzanne Barnett for inviting me to do so.
First, Writing for College and Beyond is now out and desk and review copies are available. Check out the book site, and if you’re a first-year writing instructor and would like a review or desk copy, or would like to review it for your journal, email me.
Next, Reading as Democracy in Crisis: Interpretation, Theory, History was published in April 2019. Consider ordering it for your library, for yourself, or for review in your journal. This edited anthology explores how crises in democracy during different historical periods influenced the development of different theories or methods of interpreting written works.
Rock and Romanticism: Blake, Wordsworth, and Rock from Dylan to U2 (2018) is doing great. It’s been nominated for an ASCAP music writing award and has been reviewed by Choice, Review 19, and Rock Music Studies.
Rock and Romanticism: Post-Punk, Goth, and Metal as Dark Romanticisms (2018) is doing great too. It’s been reviewed by Review 19.
Finally, I’m happy to report that David Bowie and Romanticism: The Chameleon Poet and the Changeling Self is now under contract, and Women in Rock/Women in Literature: The Emancipation of Female Will is under consideration with a publisher.
I’ve created this downloadable flyer for my new first-year writing textbook, Writing for College and Beyond. Besides being the least expensive composition text on the market, every chapter emphasizes how its writing tasks are applicable to students’ future business and professional contexts. It’s fully customizable for departmental orders and written with rural, at-risk, first generation, and professionally-oriented students in mind.
