Writing in the 21st Century is a collection of book chapters from presentations at the 2nd annual conference. The concept of writing has changed through the years to accommodate a dominantly technological society. This change has impacted the way adults communicate, collaborate, and write. For productive progression, writers must be familiar with how to market effectively with social media tools, communicate appropriately in business writing and the work environment, recognize personal goals related to their craft, and other topics of special interests. Effective writers accept the past, enjoy the present, and plan for the future.
Enhancing Writing Skills covers a topic relevant to all aspects of daily life because when writers understand their writing skills, they are able to overcome challenges they face by accessing meaningful resources. The book is in collaboration with the CW first writing conference. The conference was inspired by a need for an affordable writing conference that caters to diverse writers in the Nashville community. The themes of the book focus on genre-based writing, creativity in writing, mechanics of writing, academic writing, and writing as a business.
