    writing

    Are there good books or resources which are knowin to help improve ones written English? Because I want to improve my style and do not know which writer or which source is the best. For example when I read articles in newspapers ,like Guardian for instance, I find it very different from the way books are written!
    Does journalism have its own style(or may be language) that should not be copied by authors of books?or it is a recommended language and style?

    You will find a lot here on this website. Additionally go to BBC Learning English | Home page click on learning /writing English. Welcome I am an ex compatriot but not a patriot. Whereabouts in Iraq?
