To prepare for good writing it's important to have a handy reference book for checking style, tone, syntax, grammar, punctuation and formatting.
Today I will review 2 options for Writers' Manuals.
First of all, I like the pun in the title. A book for writers can win me with wit, for sure!
The publisher recommends it for grades 8-12.
Reviewers on Amazon give it 4.6 out of 5 Stars.
Quotes from the reviews include:
- "Writers Inc is a fantastic book that helps with all types of writing. ” and
Comments written by reviewers indicate that is can be used beyond high school for college papers. And that it is a clear and concise reference book.
Since my needs are for an 8th grader in his first foray into serious literature study and essay writing, I've ordered the Writers Inc. And maybe will make a second purchase of Write for College in a few years when we've exhausted the material presented in this book.
