Description
Many writers underestimate the importance of a strong portfolio. For freelance work, creative assignments, or any other professional or academic pursuit, a compilation of writing samples is a must for all writers. Providing various examples of how to diversify and develop a writing portfolio, Burch's guide stands alone as the only resource of its kind for writers. This book presents portfolio pedagogy as the logical conclusion of a writing process. Its genre-based approach includes chapters emphasizing the memoir, advisory essay, profile, study of place, analytical essay (including literary analysis), editorial, and position paper as possible components of a portfolio. The portmanteau sections at the end of each chapter provide many examples of writing, illustrating various genres, perspectives, and levels of accomplishment. In moving from expressive to analytical writing, this book reinforces the personal voice while encouraging that it be heard by wider audiences and in increasingly varied social contexts. It therefore prepares students for general competence in writing, both personal and public, including academic writing. Creative and professional writers, and instructors of writing.
