Mature Students Guide to Writing


Jean Rose

Published by Palgrave


ISBN – 9780230297876


Are you returning to education and worrying about your ability to write good English? You are not alone. This book has been written for the many thousands of mature students who feel just as you do. The Mature Students Guide to Writing draws on the author’s experience of the most common difficulties that mature students encounter with their writing. Instead of a dry list of rules, you’ll find each item explained fully so that you can apply it to your own work.

Are you worried about writing essays? The section dealing with this takes you from your first thoughts right through putting an essay together and using the correct references, to coping with complex sentences in order to convey your ideas.

Perhaps you have been asked to write a letter, a summary, a magazine article or a report. You may have been told to come up with a piece of autobiographical writing, a short story or a poem. There are sections to help you with all these different types of writing, as well as a chapter on writing essays in exams. You can work through this book a chapter at a time, or you use it as a reference tool.

Jean Rose specialises in teaching mature students. She has taught in further and higher education, community education and in prisons. She has also run programmes for adult education and access to higher education
