Writing: A Guide for College and Beyond presents writing, reading, and research processes dynamically, using a variety of visuals to illustrate how readers interact with texts and how writers compose. One of the first textbook authors to focus on multimedia  composing, Lester Faigley employs his own advice to engage students in every step of the writing process--for both college composition and everyday life--and pulls back the curtain on how writers work. 

Aligned with the learning goals for a first-year college writing course identified in the 2014 Outcomes Statement from the Council of Writing Program Administrators, Writing: A Guide for College and Beyond gives students the support they need to succeed in first-year composition, in their other courses, and in their careers. In the 4th Edition, students can also practice and explore what they’ve learned chapter-by-chapter with interactive MyWritingLab tools, assignments, and projects.
