This colourful book is a comprehensive reference book for students from middle primary upwards and for everyone who wants to communicate effectively through writing. Blake’s Writier's Guide is split into two parts.

Part 1 — The Writing Process
Provides step-by-step instructions on the five stages of the writing process:

1. pre-writing
2. drafting
3. revising
4. editing/proofreading
5. publishing.

The traits of good writing and the tools of an author are also examined in detail.

Part 2 — Text Types
Explains what text types and genres are and features several samples of imaginative, informative and argumentative texts. Each text sample is shown with annotations that highlight their specific language and structure features.

The text types examined in the guide are:

Imaginative/narrative texts
dramatic plays
Argumentative texts
expositions (arguments)
letters to the editor
Informative texts
factual recounts
news articles

The Guide also includes Curriculum Correlation tables that link the content to the new Australian Curriculum and is an ideal resource for all primary students. Answers for the TRY THIS activities are also provided.
