    Writing from Start to Finish sets out the clearest and most comprehensive composition theory that I'm aware of today, powerfully developing the connections among thinking, speaking, reading, writing, and listening.

    —Beverlye Brown, Maplewoods Community College

This concise edition of Writing from Start to Finish uses basic oral forms to help students produce the expository, informative, and job-related writing they will need for their college and professional careers. Using the principles developed in John Schultz's "Story Workshop" approach, students learn what makes writing work for themselves and for their readers, how to employ the traditional rhetorical and story forms in their writing, and how to write in these basic forms with an audible written voice, strong imagery, a feeling of address to their reader, and a real sense of having something to say.

To provide encouraging and clearly executed models for beginning writers, this rhetoric-reader contains many selections of nonfiction and fiction by professional and classic writers as well as impressive pieces of student writing produced in story workshop classes. Students learn to do the sort of writing that students and teachers relish.
