This book brings together the work of scholars from around the world – UK, Pakistan, US, South Africa, Hungary, Korea, Mexico – to illustrate and celebrate the many ways in which Roz Ivanic has advanced the academic study of writing. Focusing on writing in different formal contexts of education, from primary through to further and higher education in a range of national contexts, the twenty one original contributions in the book critically engage with theoretical and empirical issues raised in Ivanic's influential body of work. In their exploration of writers' struggles with the demands of dominant literacy the authors significantly extend understandings of writing practices in formal institutions. Organized around three themes central to Ivanic's work – creativity and identity; pedagogy; and research methodologies – the twelve chapters and nine personal and scholarly reflections reveal the powerful ways in which Ivanic's work has influenced thinking in the field of writing and continues to open up avenues for future questioning and research.

Business owners and writers face a common set of problems – how to research, find and investigate topics that can be written about. The Web is a multi-dimensionary repository but it can require specialized tools to locate and develop this information. Public records, vital records, research portals, Freedom of Information documents, guides to investigative work and Internet resources for writers and journalists are scattered in a lot of locations – in fact I have found 157 specific ones! I’ve written a unique compendium which discusses each site by topic name, description and hyperlink. One reference tool alone can make the difference in success or failure in developing a book, an article or a web page. This is a Writer’s Intelligence Guide to Internet Resources. It is equally useful for journalists, reporters, copywriters and business owners. Search engines are acquainted primarily with words. When creating a website, the normal procedure is to search for the best designer and then get a professional website with captivating colors and graphics, but watch out! Do most websites optimize website content? Obviously not, and this is the reason why many businesses fail to reach thousands of their customers. SEO copywriting helps your website rank high on search engines. You can phenomenally improve your web copy to achieve search engine optimization and one of the reasons I wrote this guide is that not only is it my specialty but I wanted to provide a resource for the community at large – a tool that can be downloaded to one’s desktop or laptop and be an invaluable assistant to creating and optimizing web content. Brainstorming a book or a web page is the first step in the writing process. A significant amount of the content in my e-Book allows creative thinking to develop into specifics. Research For Writers covers: --Search Engines, Databases & Online Information Collections --A Guide to Web Sites for Researchers --Computer-Assisted Research --Directories, Manuals and Library Reference Materials --A searchable, browsable collection of over 157 Web sites which are instrumental in research --Copywriting Tools --Academic Research Tools --Archival Tools --Library Search Engines --Science and Psychology Search Engines --Business Search Engines --Niche Search Engines --Reference Search Engines Extremely important rules: --Rule # 1: The single biggest mistake searchers make is using the wrong search tool! --Rule # 2: Let other people do as much work for you as possible (use their metaguides and expertise to your advantage)! --Rule # 3: Bookmark, constantly organize your bookmarks as though your life depended on it! --Rule # 4: Use more than one search engine resource – use multiple resources! --Rule # 5: I’ve included as a bonus a NSA Guide to the Internet – that’s right – a link to a PDF copy of a National Security Agency Guide which was only unclassified this year. It’s an invaluable reference tool and is Link # 111. It’s a sprawling document, clocking in at over 650 pages, and is the product of many years of research and updating by a NSA information specialist whose name is redacted on the official release. Research For Writers is an important tool that can be downloaded to your desktop or laptop and used in the creative writing process.

Now in a new edition, Who Says? The Writer's Research is an innovative and brief research guide focusing on information literacy. The text shows students not only how to do research but also why research is important. Written for today's college student, Who Says? addresses contemporary research issues head on: --What does it mean to conduct research in an age when we are bombarded by collaborative information through online media and databases like Wikipedia? --Who owns this information? How do we know? --As information circulates and changes, do the lines between audience and author blur? --How should these changes alter our expectations as readers and as writers? By prompting students to think critically about matters of ownership and authority, Who Says? not only shows students how to find and incorporate credible sources in their writing, but also encourages students to synthesize their own ideas with the ideas of others, leading them to develop more confident and compelling voices as writers.

This book explores what writing for pleasure means, and how it can be realised as a much-needed pedagogy whose aim is to develop children, young people, and their teachers as extraordinary and life-long writers. The approach described is grounded in what global research has long been telling us are the most effective ways of teaching writing and contains a description of the authors' own research project into what exceptional teachers of writing do that makes the difference. The authors describe ways of building communities of committed and successful writers who write with purpose, power, and pleasure, and they underline the importance of the affective aspects of writing teaching, including promoting in apprentice writers a sense of self-efficacy, agency, self-regulation, volition, motivation, and writer-identity. They define and discuss 14 research-informed principles which constitute a Writing for Pleasure pedagogy and show how they are applied by teachers in classroom practice. Case studies of outstanding teachers across the globe further illustrate what world-class writing teaching is. This ground-breaking text is essential reading for anyone who is concerned about the current status and nature of writing teaching in schools. The rich Writing for Pleasure pedagogy presented here is a radical new conception of what it means to teach young writers effectively today.
