Writing in College: A Short Guide to College Writing
by Joseph M. Williams and Lawrence McEnerney
Lawrence McEnerney is Director of the University of Chicago Writing Program. Joseph M. Williams (1933-2008) was Professor of English Language and Literature and the founder of the University of Chicago Writing Program.
This guide is intended to help first and second year students at the University of Chicago write effective papers in the Humanities Core and Social Sciences Core. If you wish to learn more about the principles of organization and argumentation you find here, you may consult with your Humanities Intern in your first year. After your first year, you may take the Writing Program's advanced course in academic and professional writing, the Little Red Schoolhouse (aka Academic and Professional Writing, English 13000/33000).
