Professor Beth Burch shares how grammatical choices have rhetorical implications

The adage that the pen is mightier than the sword is only true if the pen is wielded appropriately. Effective and powerful writing begins with a comprehensive understanding of grammar. Former writing professor and administrator C. Beth Burch shows readers how they can enhance their writing and wield the power of words with “Grammar for Writers.”

“Grammar for Writers” is not your usual English handbook, but an elegant and appealing educational tool that helps writers make the best grammatical and rhetorical choices. Burch stresses the importance of grammatical influence on writing and guides readers in crafting prose that creates an impact. A former writing program administrator, she provides practical exercises on the road to refining syntax, style and word choice.

“Grammar for Writers bridges the gap between elementary English lessons and more theoretical understanding of language,” Burch said. “There is a hierarchical approach to this book. I walk readers through the individual elements of the English language, how those elements work together and finally how to employ those elements to craft meaningful writing.”

“Grammar for Writers” returns readers to basic concepts of the English language while also guiding them to apply advanced structures in their writing. For more information, please visit
