Grounded in the art of writing, The Well-Crafted Sentence zeroes in on the sentence, offering a range of revision strategies that lead students to write fuller, more well-developed prose. In a friendly, conversational style, Nora Bacon makes clear how and why sentences work to focus, balance, develop, and qualify writers' ideas. Because students are more likely to try out new sentence structures if they've seen them in writing they admire, examples throughout the text are drawn from readings by accomplished stylists whose full pieces are also included in a chapter at the end of the book. Integrated exercises and editing practice help students apply concepts to their own writing. Affordable and brief, The Well-Crafted Sentence works as a core classroom text or as a supplement.
