Bright Futures Publishing is providing marketing and administrative support for the first-year writing textbook Writing for College and Beyond (Lulu Press, 2019).
James Rovira is a higher education professional with 18 years’ experience teaching first-year writing. Dr. Rovira wrote this textbook after realizing that many students need explanations of how the tasks students perform in their first-year writing classes are common in business and professional contexts, explanations that most first-year writing texts lack. If you’re tired of hearing freshman students complain about having to take “irrelevant” general education courses, this textbook is for you.
