Inspire students to craft clear, concise, and engaging writing

Briefer and more accessible than full-length texts, Wordsmith: A Guide to Paragraphs and Short Essays is the antidote to dry, overwrought, and overly expansive writing guides. It engages students, serves multiple skill levels, and teaches enduring writing techniques in a way that’s actionable, contemporary, hands-on, and fun.


The 7th Edition is a powerful tool for students and teachers alike. With appealing, topical readings and expanded writing exercises, the updated text empowers instructors to meet students where they are and engage their collective interests. A three-part layout allows the freedom to mix and match the writing chapters, grammar chapters, and readings. Pam Arlov’s structured, yet flexible, approach to writing encourages clarity and creativity. Her direct, conversational, student-friendly tone is used throughout, with light-hearted chapter openers that promote a positive and playful way of learning.


The loose-leaf version of the text is also available with MyLab Writing
