I am grateful to many of the world’s news publications for real world, concise guidance I am receiving on improving my writing. Together, we are developing my ability to have letters to the Editor and articles be of publishable quality.
Aiming to support my network’s effort to develop my ability, I took a look at the e-book titled: How to write articles and get them published [electronic resource] / Natalie Canavor, Claire Meirowitz. By scanning this e-book, I became informed as to how much real-world learning I have done this summer and how effective it is. That e-book is mostly irrelevant to me.
I like Pay It Forward economies. I want my fellow and future SFU students to benefit from my positive experience. So I looked for a way to put a comment on the e-book – specifically, a comment offering some friendly and informed guidance to real beginners who may still find the e-book useful. Commenting on e-books was an unavailable option.
Therefore, I am writing to suggest we implement commenting on e-books and other books we borrow and read. Writing reviews of what we read is an excellent writing practice I learned from writing.com, the premier online writing community. My thanks to the staff of SFU Library who make such an excellent collection of material available to us, and who have implemented excellent search and retrieval abilities. I see the signs of very intelligent and fully committed minds at work throughout the library system, take this moment to acknowledge and thank you, and I appreciate your effective influence throughout SFU.
Thank you for your email.
