The Writing Process

Going through the full writing process—pre-writing, drafting, revising, rewriting and publishing—can be a lot of work, but it’s always worth the effort. Each stage of the writing process builds on the last, and each subsequent stage would be much harder if the previous one hadn’t been completed. When students read the essay in its final, polished form, it becomes clear that following the complete writing process produces the best essay.

Time4Writing’s free writing resources cover the writing process. The games, printables, and presentation supplement Time4Writing’s online courses. Designed to help students improve their writing skills, regardless of academic grade or proficiency level, Time4Writing’s 8-week courses provide more in-depth practice and one-on-one instruction by a certified teacher.
