This Guide provides the knowledge and tools required to be a successful writer. The guide is split into two parts: Part 1 - The Writing Process: Provides step-by-step instructions on the five stages of the writing process, namely, pre-writing; drafting; revising; editing/proofreading; publishing. The traits of good writing and the tools of an author are also examined in detail. Part 2 - Text Types: Explains what text types and genres are and features several samples of imaginative, informative and argumentative texts. Each text sample is shown with annotations that highlight their specific language and structure features.
