OP 04. The Construction of Purpose in Writing and Reading

By Linda Flower

Summary: Based on a decade of studies of the cognitive processes student and expert writers reveal while composing text, this paper discusses two interrelated concerns: how writers come by/find/create their sense of purpose, and whether readers are aware of or are affected by writers' purposeful text construction. July, 1988; 21 pages.
