True, writing is an art - but, like any art, it requires only about 1% talent and 99% practice. Practice of any kind - and writing is no exception - becomes more efficient if we learn some basic skills and techniques. And these skills and techniques can be taught - and have been taught in numerous classes, workshops, and books.
Since you will hopefully all want to become masters in the art of writing, I would like to invite you to find a book about writing that teaches some useful techniques and skills and write a review about it. The book can focus on academic OR on creative writing, but please choose one that we have NOT used in this class :)
Please remember to give the author and title of the book and to let the rest of us know if you would recommend the book or not.
