Category Description for Writer's Inc. (9-12):

There is great similarity between the 2001 edition and the 2006 edition of Writer's INC Handbook including the cover and inside graphics. The content is more or less the same but organization is slightly different.

The Writers INC: School to Work is a specialized handbook that emphasizes writing not only in school but also at work. While containing much of the basic information of the Writers INC books (i.e. writing process, elements of writing, and forms of writing), there is an obvious change of emphasis with applications and samples drawn from the workplace. There are additional specific sections on workplace issues (ethics, goal-setting) and speaking and listening (basic communication skills) as well as reading, thinking, and learning (study skills).

A new Teacher's Guide to the 2006 edition of the Handbook is also available, which is similar to earlier editions and provides chapter notes that correspond to the handbook, teaching tips, assessment tools, additional learning strategies, and tips for getting the most out of the handbook.




Every five years the Great Source publishing company puts all the components of its delightful and thoroughly comprehensive writing and grammar program into a big pot and stirs it up. Then they repackage it in a new edition. Some of these editions are more homeschool-friendly than others. The mid-90's edition was good, but some of the components are no longer available. The "turn of the century" edition was problematic. However, this newest edition has come around full circle, and its components are put together in such a way that with minimal expense (the purchase of the student book) you have a strong, easy-to-use composition course. The additional components strengthen the grammar instruction, and the teacher's book fills in around the edges.

I have experience with the 2001 edition of this book and I have found it to be extremely helpful. I am ordering this one just so that I have the most recent publication.

This is by far the best writer's handbook I have found on the market. I am on the lookout for something better but even though the most recent edition is 11 years old, it is still the best.

A shopper on Jul 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Writer's Inc. is a paperback book. The front and back cover are "heavier" than a typical paperback book and has a glossy/coated finish on it. We like the flexibility of the paperback book.
