Fit to Print is designed to be a brief, engaging text that covers all the basics of writing an essay in a scholarly environment. Going into its eighth edition, this text continues its tradition of teaching students how to organize and write an essay with attention to overcoming specific difficulties of grammar and style. Joanne Buckley believes there is not just a single framework for writing an essay; by taking a narrative approach, she recognizes the complexity of writing a paper, but does so in a way that is easy for students to understand and apply to their own writing.
