Will Publishing ESL Students' Writing Keep Then from Perishing?

Keywords

Abstract

Anyone who has ever taken pen in hand is frustratingly aware of what Isaac Singer meant when he said that there "... are no miracles in writing. The only thing that produces good writing is hard work." As most of us involved with language teaching are aware, when the writing has to be done in a second language the "hard work" is generally multiplied many times over. Writing in a second language is not an easy task, yet it is one of the most valuable skills a language learner will ever develop.
