1, 2, 3 Write! by Gay Monteverde is licensed under CC BY-NC-SA 4.0, except where otherwise noted. It was adapted from Writing for Success, which in turn was adapted from a work produced and distributed under a Creative Commons license (CC BY-NC-SA) in 2011 by a publisher who has requested that they and the original author not receive attribution.
1, 2, 3 Write! retains several exercises and tables from Writing for Success and some nicely written explanations, but about 75% of the original 96,000-word text was cut. Then, information on basic writing mechanics, expanded writing process steps, example readings, and vocabulary was added. Chapters were reordered to reflect a 1, 2, 3-step process, moving from words to sentences to paragraphs to essays.
1, 2, 3, Write! is designed for college students who need further study in writing mechanics before tackling freshman composition.
