4.0 out of 5 stars A level editorial writing 18 Dec 2001
By A Customer
This is a really really helpful book for any1 intrested in editorial writing. written essentially as a guide for module 4 aqa A2 syllabus, it shows you step by step how to tackle any source material and re-write for a different audience, purpose and genre. It is engaging and entertaining and an excellent book to use. I have followed this while studying for my exam and it is helping me achieve grades that would have otherwise been impossible for me to achieve.
The only thing they could add would be a section on how to write a decent commentry.
