Processes concerns the intellectual processes that writers engage in when communicating.
Processes explores how writers work with their declarative knowledge of Collaboration, Editing, Genre, Information Literacy, Invention, Mindset, Organization, Research, Rhetoric, Revision, and Style in order to create and communicate.
Collaboration, Editing, Genre, Information Literacy, Invention, Mindset, Organization, Research, Rhetoric, Revision, Style–these resources at Writing Commons focus on providing declarative knowledge about these intellectual processes.
The page below, in contrast, focuses on procedural knowledge about these processes. In other words, the goal below is to explore how rhetors manage these processes when composing. It explores how these processes interact with one another depending on the purpose of the rhetor and rhetorical situation.
