Write Now is the only English composition textbook that convinces students that writing is important in school, in the workplace, and in their lives. It is a concise, visually appealing, all-inclusive rhetoric, reader, research guide, and handbook.

Write Now includes career-based writing examples as well as traditional, contemporary, and multicultural readings. It introduces a new approach to writing tasks called the rhetorical star and a new seven-step writing process that emphasizes revision. The writing style is highly accessible for students at a career college, community college, or university.
