About the Author

Paul MacRae is an instructor of business and professional writing at the University of Victoria.


Paul MacRae's Business and Professional Writing delivers on its promise to provide a basic bread-andbutter guide to workplace writing. Whereas other books combine practical writing instruction with communication theory, MacRae's background as a journalist comes through in his concise approach: he hones in on the core genres and skills that all professional writers must develop as part of their writing repertoires. This book practices what it teaches. Concepts are explained and illustrated clearly and efficiently. The strong section on grammar clearly explains the basics that need to be in every professional writer's toolkit. The book's brevity, conciseness, and to-the-point approach make it a practical, accessible textbook that would be a great resource for any student.' - Kelly Belanger, Virginia Tech
