Usage and Mechanics Providing Feedback on Student Writing Learning from Professional Writers Writing in the 21st Century
Christopher Myers
 
. . ." [My advice] for young writers [is] to understand that good writing is about getting across what they're trying to say. So often when people teach writing to young writers, they focus on what the buzz words are of good writing. Detail. Scene. Setting. Descriptions. Adjectives. And often times they forget that writing is, in essence, about communication. And I think that that is a hallmark of all the writing I love. It communicates a point or an idea."
