The Student Writer: Editor and Critic is an introduction to composition which aims to provide readers with a comprehensive understanding of the writing process facilitating the construction of coherent and critical arguments. The Student Writer offers a unique emphasis on revision and editing. The "Critique, Revise, and Edit" feature focuses on the need for writers to examine their drafts critically with their audience and purpose in mind and to revise accordingly.

The Student Writer takes a sequential approach by introducing readers to the value of critical reading, and then moves on to the construction and blending of various rhetorical patterns. Students are encouraged to apply the rhetorical patterns in argument, in research papers, in literary analyses, and more. With the help of The Student Writer readers will develop their own writing processes and become more creative, confident, and critical writers.
