Admit One: Writing Your Way into the Best Colleges
College admissions-that is, admission to the school of your choice-has become incredibly competitive. Students and their families prepare from grade school onward to shape school careers that will give them a leg up in applying to selective colleges. But sterling academic performance, AP classes, high test scores, and sports and other extracurricular activities are no longer enough to guarantee a slot at Stanford, Johns Hopkins, or the Ivies. In Admit One, Thomas Richards focuses on a key aspect of the college admissions decision, one that makes all the difference in applications: good writing. This involves mastering the dreaded personal essay-but more than that, it means writing a college application with a consistent overarching narrative, one that tells a student's intimate story. Writing has the ability to render the grain of a student's own voice, fully integrated and fully under their own control. More than any other element of the application, strong writing is capable of revealing applicants as individuals from the inside out, allowing admissions committees to make fine distinctions between otherwise identical candidates. In plain language, Richards draws together this sense of writing as central to college admissions while showing candidates the secrets of creating an effective, beautifully crafted personal essay. From selecting words to shaping sentences, building paragraphs, and even clarifying a voice, Richards's approach is the key to getting a student's application noticed and read. The resulting essay that readers craft will come as close as possible to being a trustworthy representation of a whole person. Treating the college application as a rigorous intellectual exercise, Admit One contains everything students need to know in order to present themselves with clear-edged precision to an application committee.

Don't Read Poetry: A Book About How to Read Poems
In Don't Read Poetry, award winning poet and literary critic Stephanie Burt offers an accessible introduction to the seemingly daunting task of reading, understanding, and appreciating poetry. She dispels preconceptions about poetry, explains how poems speak to one another, and how they can speak to our lives. It shows readers how to find more poems once they have some poems they like, and how to connect the poetry of the past to poetry of the present. Unlike other guides, Burt does not approach poetry chronologically, or by school, form, or poet. Instead, her book moves through six reasons to read poetry. These include feeling and attitude, or how poems can embody, reflect, and share emotions, and difficulty and frustration, or how poets present us with problems and let us see the world anew. Each chapter explores the theme through the works of various poets and their histories. Burt moves seamlessly from the classics - Sappho, Wordsworth, Plath &c - to poetry circulated in Riot Grrrl fanzines or on Twitter. She challenges the assumptions that most people make about poetry, whether they think they like it or think they don't (it's all old; it's all incomprehensible; it's sappy, or soppy; it's lovely; it's uplifting; it's good if it's in the New Yorker; it can't be good if it's in the New Yorker) in order to help us cherish-and distinguish among-individual poems. If the book has one governing argument, it's this: Don't read poetry ; read poems. Burt seeks to fill a gap by providing a book that, while suitable for course adoption, is written for the average trade reader. Don't Read Poetry stands apart from other books as well in the sheer range of forms considered (from aubades to zeugma-based, Twitter-friendly epigrams), and the timeline covered. For the first time, Burt will take full account of new styles of poetry from the past few decades-poetry dependent on the digital environment, for example, or on practices imported from gallery art, from radical social thought (CAConrad, or books from Ugly Duckling Presse), or the culture and language of Korean, and Native, and Chinese, and Latina/o/x, Americans, from Carter Revard to the current U.S Poet Laureate. Destined to become a classic, Don't Read Poetry is the perfect book for anyone confronting poetry for the first time, but also has much to teach the those fully immersed in the genre.

Dedicated chapters introduce students to different types of writing, including reflective, analytical, position, informative, and research. The text concludes with a handbook that covers common mistakes in grammar and mechanics, as well as a collection of readings that challenges students to apply what they've learned, encouraging them to critically think about, read, and write about the selections.

Through the Mist and toward the Light: Grammar for the First Year College Writer
Through the Mist and toward the Light: Grammar for the First Year College Writer offers a new approach to grammatical concepts to encourage and improve the grammar proficiency and writing skills for beginning writers. Far from a traditional handbook, the text presents innovative, engaging, practical, and accessible approaches to grammar that is often found difficult to first year college students. Section 1 of the text builds on the premise that good sentence structure is based on a student's ability to identify how each word in a sentence is being used. To that end, the section offers an in-depth look at the parts of speech and the many rules surrounding their correct usage. Section 2 fosters writing proficiency through an analysis of the most often misused punctuation symbols in the writing of first year students, offering detailed exercises to promote correct usage. Section 3 walks students through the common inhibitors to sound sentence structure and rhythm, and focuses on concepts often found challenging for multilingual student writers. The final section helps students transition to the next level of writing proficiency by introducing them to the intricacies of structural and transformational diagramming to engage their own sentence structure, build on what they have learned, and continue to develop their mastery of grammar. Through the Mist and toward the Light is an ideal and practical resource for foundational courses in writing and composition. The text can also be used to support freshmen orientation or student success courses or programs.

LEARN HOW TO WRITE CONVINCING AND COMPELLING DIALOGUE. Commissioning editors say good dialogue is one of the first things that make a book stand out from the crowd - and similarly, that clunky direct speech is one of the first things that will send a book straight from the slushpile to the rejections bin.

In this practical guide for aspiring writers of all levels, Irving Weinman, himself a published writer and well-known creative writing tutor, uses case studies to help you explore how to write good dialogue, and gives you a range of fun and challenging exercises that will help you to write great dialogue.

Over the years the author has found that teachers often misunderstand what the actual needs of their students are, and they therefore often digress into long discussions and explanations which are not needed to enhance the IELTS Band Score of their students. With this in mind, the author has gone to great lengths to ensure that only material that is crucial was included, and that the language used in this textbook fits the level at which the students - for whom this book is intended - are at present. Many IELTS students are aspiring to attend a tertiary educational institute in the United States of America. The copy editors of this publication were born and bred in America. They went to great lengths to ensure that the text complies with the highest standard of idiomatic American English and using only American English vocabulary as opposed to British English vocab. The IELTS organization is constantly developing new Writing topics. Over and above the fifty topics found in the model essays, this publication contains a list of no less than 277 official IELTS topics. These topics have been collected from actual tests spanning more than a decade and include the most recent topics to be found. This information is crucial in the preparation for the test as they are actual test topics that could appear at any time in future.

'I know I have a book in me.' 'I've always wanted to be an author.' 'People often ask me when I'm going to write my book.' 'I have a story to tell, but I never seem to make time to write.' These are just a sampling of the messages Kelly Notaras hears every day from would-be authors around the globe. Life coaches with new methods for living on purpose... healers who've learned how to prevent disease and increase life force... everyday heroes and heroines who have made it through difficult circumstances and want to inspire others to do the same. In today's tumultuous world, we need these voices in the marketplace. Moreover, publishing a book has never been as simple, accessible, and affordable as it is today. So why are so many thought leaders, healers, and change-agents stuck at the starting line? This book will light the way - offering a simple, step-by-step path for turning your transformational idea or story into a finished book as quickly as possible. With humor, encouragement, and common sense, book industry veteran Kelly Notaras demystifies the publishing process so you can get started, keep writing, and successfully get your wisdom onto the page. First, you'll get clear on your motivation for writing a book. Then you'll craft a powerful, compelling hook and the strong internal structure every successful book needs. Kelly goes on to offer advice for handling resistance, writer's block, and other obstacles that can keep you from sitting down to write. Lastly, you'll discover how to take your finished manuscript to the next level, whether through traditional publishing or self-publishing - so that you can share your message with the world!
