About the book:

A brief and engaging conversation on how to write with clarity and grace.

  • Offers ten lessons on the principles of writing powerful, clear, and effective prose.
  • Empowers writers to use their writing as a method to explore their own thinking.

The Basics of Style is a direct, engaging, brief conversation on writing with style. The four sections-Style as Choice, Clarity, Grace, and Ethics- feature principles of effective prose. Williams offers these principles as reason-based approaches to improving prose, rather than hard and fast rules to writing well. Style empowers writers to use their writing not only as a tool to identify and solve problems, but also as a method to explore their own thinking.

Joseph M. Williams is a leading scholar in the discipline of composition.
