This is an engaging and practical introduction to the elements of grammar, sentence structure, and style that you need to write well across a range of academic, creative, and professional contexts, deftly combining practical strategies with scholarly principles.

The second edition includes updated material based on a longstanding commitment to writing and to best international practice. It includes advice on reading; language; grammar and style; structuring; designing; paragraphing; punctuation; workplace and academic documents; digital writing for social media; and revising, editing, and proofreading.

How Writing Works should be on the desk of everyone who needs to write: students, professionals in all fields, and creative writers. It is an essential handbook for working writers and writing workers in the contemporary writing-reliant workplace.

The accompanying companion website includes video interviews and presentations from leading grammarians including Professor David Crystal and Professor Geoff Pullum, in addition to online quizzes and activities to support readers' learning.

"Its potential use is not restricted to educators and researchers, but, for me, as a non-native English speaker and junior researcher, working with Roslyn Petelin's book helped me to master the standards required of various genres within academic writing. This book is a good starting point for researchers who are exposed to an English writing environment for the first time and is likely to help them to enhance their writing efficacy."
Jie Liu, Educatinal Review
