A Writer’s Reference

For success in college, no skill is more critical than writing; it’s the very core of a student’s academic experience. Tested and trusted, A Author’s Reference is an essential tool for students who are strengthening habits and skills so that you can fortify them all over college.

In an April 2014 survey of first-year writers, 75 percent reported that the usage of a Hacker handbook made them a more confident academic Author. What’s more, A Author’s Reference has been a powerful tool for change across college campuses—helping to create a culture of writing at many schools by supporting a common language for talking about academic writing. In that way, A Author’s Reference is uniquely positioned to help change into attitudes about the value of writing instruction and the role that writing plays in academic work and in higher learning.

With this eighth edition of the handbook, creator Nancy Sommers invites you to be a part of a community of those who teach and assign writing; who consider that critical reading, analytical writing, responsible research, and clarity are at the center of effective writing across the academy; and who use the nation’s best-selling and most responsive handbook to fortify the development of the college Author.
