About: John G Maguire

John G Maguire began college as a physics major, switched to English after three semesters, and then began newspaper work, where he was science and medicine editor on several daily news papers, including the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle and the Miami News. He began teaching writing a Boston University, where he directed the masters program in science journalism. In the mid-1990s he developed a new and quite different method of teaching college freshmen to write. He has spent years perfecting the course, which he has taught, at this writing, more than 50 times. He's the author of the Newsweek College Writing Guide, and its descendent, John Maguire's College Writing Guide. He currently lives in the Boston area. He teaches, he coaches teachers, and he edits scientific papers.
