Using a process-writing approach, this third-year composition text will help students master their writing skills in order to become confident authors, who have found their voice in written French. The text is set up in a workbook format and is written entirely in French, except for the first chapter. Each chapter begins and ends with a creative writing exercise. In between these "book-ends", students will broaden their repertoire of related speech acts, vocabulary, grammatical structures and stylistic elements as illustrated by their usage a literary piece, journalistic selection, or informal writing, drawn from the rich repertoire of Francophone (written) production (expression).Über den Autor:
