Cooper Hill Press Announces Publication of Writing & Revision Stylebook as an Ebook

The increasing deterioration of writing skills among high school and college students is among the most worrisome academic problems confronting educators. English teachers in particular have frequently voiced the need for a straight-forward yet comprehensive revision manual, especially one available in a searchable ebook format compatible with a tech-savvy generation of students.
