Oct. 6, 2009: New Collection of Donald Murray's Work Published
edited by Thomas Newkirk and Lisa C. Miller
excerpt from book cover: For nearly 60 years, Don Murray was a tireless explorer, chronicler, and advocate of writers, writing, and the teaching of writing. "We are coaches, encouragers, developers, creators of environments in which our students can experience the writing process for themselves," he wrote in 1972. Through the years and over numerous books. academic articles, newspaper columns, classroom handouts, writing conferences, and warm collegial conversations, thousands of students, writers, and teachers benefited from Don's work--including this volume's editors, his friends and colleagues at the University of New Hampshire, Thomas Newkirk and Lisa C. Miller. Millions more continue to benefit by the wide circle of his influence over the fields of writing, writing instruction, and journalism.
