"This book is smart and useful---and it's well-designed. Students can easily find what they need." ---Susan Marie Harrington, University of Vermont

"A book students can really use on their own." ---Pat McQueeney, Johnson County Community College

Many assignments specify the kind of writing you need to do --- to analyze X, for example, or to compare X and Y. Sometimes, however, you will get to (or have to) decide what kind of writing you will do. You'll find help in the Little Seagull, from full chapters on 7 kinds of writing to detailed glossary definitions of many others.
